Christmas gets so hectic, sometimes its good to make time to enjoy a little peace and Tranquility.
I love this scene, I think  its a Woodware stamp, but not sure its so well used.
This card I made  for the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping challenges , the theme is ' Shabby Chic Christmas'.
The base card is random stamped with a Stampers Anonymous snowflake image.
Colours used for all the shading are Vintage Photo and Tumbled Glass distress ink.
Two of the layers are  dry embossed, a tiny ivy sprig for one and music. Both folders are Embossalicious ones. As you can see the blunt scissors were used on the edges, material scraps  etc for interest. The lace and ribbon were also shaded with Vintage Photo DI.
Please pop over and see what my design team sisters made and get all the details and read about the prize from our sponsor Flonzcraft.

Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.
