Square Christmas Card

I'm still busy making Christmas cards and keep finding more challenge blogs to enter! For this one layer card I made a mask from copy paper which I inked through using an ink duster brush to create a subtle effect. Then I spritzed some Perfect Pearls over the square before stamping the sentiment 3 times. I deliberated about adding any gems but I felt the card needed a little bling!

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges :-
Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #124 gifts/presents
One Layer Simplicity Challenge #9 Hip to be Square

Materials used:-
Distress inks - tumbled glass and broken china
Inkylicious ink duster
Archival ink - aquamarine and cornflower blue
Stamp from Penny Black set "Giving and Receiving"

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