Sunday Slot

So it's begun - that magical time of year when Christmas is on everyone's mind.  This year I will be making an album for December following Shimelle's prompts on her Journal Your Christmas workshop.  This will be the third year I've made an album and I'm waiting now for the first email prompt to come through so I can get started. Don't you just love Christmas!

Today's card, of course, had to be a Christmas one and the colours from Color Throwdown are so icy and sophisticated who could resist? When I was shoppoing last week in nottingham I saw a tag card that spoke to me and I've based my layout on that card.  I used silver mirri card to try to get some of that pure icy silvery feel and have added glitter to the star and holly berries - which doesn't really show on the photo.

  

Supplies:
Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Modern Christmas & Holiday Sentimants
Inks: Memento, pistachio, bamboo leaves, London fog; Ranger distress ink, bundled sage round the edges
Embellishments: Stickles, Star Dust

Advent Calendar task 1: Eat chocolate - might as well start the season as I mean to go on!

Thanks for dropping by today.
