christmas greetings *Heartfelt Creations*

Hop ends on Friday, Jan 1st at midnight.

The layout for this card was inspired by Claudia Rosa. It's been so long since I've seen the card on her blog, I don't know which post it was exactly... Papers are from Frosty Blanket by Heartfelt Creations and the green snowflake paper is SEI. The image stamp is from Holiday Haven and the sentiment is from Yuletide Sentiments. Unfortunately, these items are all retired... Looks I need to do some shopping and update my stash! The snowflake border punch is by Fiskars.

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and tried to keep it simple. After cutting it with Spellbinders dies, I inked the edges with blue distress ink. I used Vintage Photo distress ink on the edges of the sentiment and topped with Diamond Stickles.

Thanks for stopping by!
