Emma's card

The end of my Christmas cards is in sight .... ;)
This one uses an old Elzybell's stamp that I rediscovered when I was looking through my Splitcoaststampers gallery.  I always find that my most recent stamp purchase is my favourite and sometimes forget I have all these lovely stamps hiding in a box!

I've coloured with my watercolour pencils.  I added Wink of Stella to the branches and to the bauble, and then added some clear gloss to the baubles too.  Memory Box snowflake border die; Paper Smooches snowflakes dies.
I'm not loving this DP, but it looks a bit better in real life!

    1. Hi Caroline, this stamp is made by a company which closed a few years ago called Elzybells and I think it's called 'Mouse Bauble'. Hope this helps :)
