Blue & Gray Christmas

I'm excited to play along at City Crafter Challenge, it's been a while since I have had an opportunity and I always enjoy their challenges.  I was drawn to the winter barnyard scene in the inspiration photo and thought this lovely stamp of a wintery house would be a good choice.  This was another card that took a lot of twists and turns.  It ended up with more gray than my original plan but I'm on a non-traditional Christmas color roll so it works for me.  My nod to the silver is the silver embossed sentiment and trio of rhinestones.  I've been doing a lot of heat embossing lately, maybe it's the Christmas card spree?  I had gotten away from it for quite a long time, but have really enjoyed the effect lately.



Happy Stamping,
Dana
