Blue Christmas Cottage




Stamping onto textured card stock can be good and bad. I love the texture because the otherwise solid sky has a look of a snowy night and stars shining through. The stamp is memory box Cottage Cabin stamped in Stampin Up's Midnight Muse. Frosted stickles made the ink bleed but I can deal with it. Imperfectly handmade!

I absolutely adore this card, Angela! I'm so glad you linked your blog up to the Moxie Fab World Blogroll. It will be great to stop by and say "hello" from time to time!

How pretty, Angela! I love the textured sky and my Stickles (Dazzling Details)always smear the color. Blue isn't so bad, but black and red not so good! I'm learning to be more careful...sometimes!
