Santa and sleigh

I've made an early start with my Christmas cards this year! This one qualifies for the NBUS challenge as the stamps have been sitting in my stash for some time. I used an ink duster to apply distress inks to the sky and then spritzed this with perfect pearls for a frosty look. I tried to keep the card clean and simple but felt it need a little sparkle as it was a snowy scene!

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:-
AAA cards #19 Moon sketch
NBUS #2 - Christmas
Merry Monday #125 Transportation

Materials used:-
Hobby Art stamps "From our home to yours "
Sentiment - Stampin Up "Season of Joy" set
Distress inks - broken china and tumbled glass
Perfect pearls
Diamond sparkles "Angel Whispers" by Hunkydory
Clarity masks - moon and hills
Ink duster - Inkylicious

Thank you very much for visiting my blog - I really appreciate your comments. Margaret
