blue christmas?!

this fortnight's prompt at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ is called "blue christmas" but it's hard to see who could be sad if they got to play with indigo and ultramarine colorburst, then diecut snowflakes from the result, and layer them on top of old skool basic grey patterned paper, torn vintage book pages and doilies, isn't it? as a matter of fact, i had a ball with all of the above!

apparently, i'm still in a bit of a "torn paper" phase, but i keep on liking how it looks, so i'm not even going to waste time worrying about that. a little bit of ink, some wonky stitching, and those biiiiiiiiiiig honkin' rhinestones and i was ready to call this one DONE!

i was inspired by mojo monday #496, but since i wound up putting the strips ON TOP of the panel, i'm not sure i haven't veered too far from the sketch at this point. i am very grateful for the inspiration, however!

miss stephanie has a gorgeous card to show you, why not banish the blues with us at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥?!


  1. Gorgeous card, love the design. You rip a few pcs. of paper and it looks awesome, I do the same and it looks like ripped paper.

  2. super papers and those snowflakes are awesome.
