Country Blue Christmas

Hello Friends! 

I am happy to say I have another Christmas card for the stash.  It has a wonderful vintage/country feel to it and lots of texture from the burlap, as well as very light sponging using drywall tape as the stencil.  I have contrasted that texture with Crystal Effects on most of the ornament and silver Stickles on the star of the ornament-unfortunately, these products are not visible in the photo. 

This card is for several challenges including Simon Says Stamp's sketch challenge-

Curtain Call's great inspiration challenge-

And The Shabby Tea Room's Gingham Country Christmas Challenge-

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!

Lee Ann  :)
