After WWII, my Dad got an art education degree but he couldn't find a teaching job; instead he learned how to do blueprints and had several jobs designing retail stores. I used to love to visit him at work and watch him draw and print his blueprints. I loved the smell of the chemicals (kind of like mimeograph!). So I'm drawn to things that have to do with blueprints and had to have these Tim Holtz Christmas stamps. I also wanted to do the FS so I chose this card of Lee-Ann's: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=149855
I turned my card and used a saying stamp along the bottom instead of the ribbon. I silver embossed 'tis the season to make it stand out. The snowflake is clear embossed with the n of n and Versamark and a little of the boysenberry sponged in the middle. I loved Lee-Ann's gallery, especially this collage card. My shiny today is the star gem, the embossing and the navy metallic cs. can't have too much shiny this time of year!

Ooh, so far I've restrained myself from buying these TH images...but you've certainly made me rethink that with this gorgeous card! Pretty sponging and lovely silver embossing! Thank you so much for playing!
