Merry Christmas

Hello friends,

Another Christmas card to share today. This one is not in the traditional Christmas colors but in a color combo of aqua and brown – one of my favorite color combo’s. The image is from Little Birdie Blessings which I layered on a doily sprayed with Dazzles glimmer mist and distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink “Vintage photo”. I added some gold glitter to the edge to match the lovely flower from the Prima range “Bellas”. Hopefully I have enough cards now when I start to do my gift wrapping before Christmas eve!

To all my followers and blog friends – Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and for my Christian friends, have a blessed Christmas.

    Beautiful project, Amelia! The image is awesome and I love your treatment of it. Your card has that old world vintage feel and your color palette and embellishments (especially that lace) have captured the period perfectly. Thanks for leaving this on our front porch here at 613 Avenue Create

    Hi Amelia,
    Pragtig soos altyd, hou van jou kleure!
    Hoop dit gaan goed met jou? Ek verlede maand so vining draai in Pretoria kom maak. Moes die Kardioloog by die Zuid-Afrikaanse Hospitaal gaan sien, gelukkig was daar niks ernstig verkeerd met die ou “ticker” nie!
    Geseende Kersfees vir jou en Voorspoed vir 2014.
    Liefde
    Karien
