This card was suppose to be for a challenge at SCS that my friend Sue hosted on VSN. The challenge was to make a "Blue" Christmas card. Well, I started out with good intentions, but the rules are you only have 45 minutes to make the card. This card took on a life of it's own and is way more than a 45 minute card-so I never posted it. But I do love it!! Sue, I am so sorry I didn't make it-but me and 45 minute cards make strange bedfellows.
I used Stormy Sky's Distress ink on all my embellishments and lots of glitter. The poinsettia were cut from vellum and Tilda's coat has polar white flower soft.
Still making Christmas cards-not that I have to but because I want to. Thanks for taking a peek.
30 punches including the inside

GASP - Carol, what a beautiful holiday card. I know, it took you 50 minutes instead of 45 right? It would take me 45 minutes just to punch all the details! I LOVE BLUE, so this really appeals to me and that sweet image. Carol, you've got it and then some!! Happy Holidays!
