Silent Night, Holy Night

Another card with untraditional Christmas colors as I practice more shabby chic and vintage designs. My new daughter-in-law just fell in love with this card, so it's already slated to give to her and my son for Christmas. (They aren't blog followers, so it's cool!). I wanted to share this with you before it heads out the door.



I love the combination of kraft and pale blue.. there's something so calming about the combination and who couldn't use a bit more 'calm' at this time of year. There's snow and glitter on the swirl chipboard, all is antiqued with Tim Holtz' Tea Dye distress ink, the ribbon is seam binding that I dyed with a copic pen using an air brush. The charm is one that I had in my ever-growing stash.

This card is perfect for this time of year and all of the Christmas challenges right now. So, I'm going into overload and entering this in these challenges: 
Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm hoping all of my friends aren't in the throes of holiday madness and are enjoying some leisurely crafting time.
