Blue Winter Wishes

Hi Everyone

Thank you for visiting.  Its been really cold here today although the sun has been out!  Today I would like to share with you a Christmas Card with a Darker Theme.  I wanted to do something a bit different and non traditional.  I think I managed this lol!  I have kept it quite Clean and Simple to my usual cards.  The Image is from Delicious Doodles and is called Holly Sugar Skull.  Here's what I have used.  Bazzil Basics Blue for by Base/Frame Layer.  I layered White Embossed Swiss Dots card onto this.  Then repeated this process but a bit smaller. The Flourish is a Cheery Lynn Holly Flourish which I cut in the same blue.  I Stamped the Winter Wishes sentiment which is from Spellbinders using a Versa Mark Blue Ink Pad.  To finish I added a Dark Blue Bow and 3 Pearl Gems.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges

I hope you like my little bit of Dark Non Traditional.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  I love to hear what you all say.  I actually might colour this one up again and make it traditional this time!  Thank you for visiting and hope to see you again soon
