Snowman's Hat


The challenge this week on A Spoon Full of Sugar is 'So charming' and to use a charming character or charms on your card, I've used a little candy cane charm brad on my card. The image is by Elzybells from the dinky Christmas set and stamped in black versafine, water coloured with distress inks. The card blank is embossed with a square nestability (not my idea, I saw it somewhere but can't remember where, thanks to whoever it was) then stamped with an Elzybells snowflake in Versamark and heat embossed with Kaleidascope EP. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
