Santa Claus is coming to town....

It's snowing...yay!!

I wanted to try something a bit different, so instead of layering up my papers, I inked the edges with Distress Ink...not sure about it though....

So the papers are from MME - Winter Wonderland, the snowflakes are punched with a Martha Stewart punch and a TH snow flurries die which i glittered up and then added pearls to the centres.  The tags are from LOTV.  The stamp is from sugar Nellie which I coloured with copics.

Be sure to pop back tomorrow for a brand new challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'.

I love that Sugar Nellie snowman & you have coloured & sparkled him up a treat. The inky edges look lovely to me - I think we are just so used to matting, it takes a bit of getting use to. Thank you so much for joining us at an OBAG & we hope to see you back soon, Jx
