Midnight Blue Happy Christmas - Giveaway Card

Hello Crafters

I started this post whilst I was in the green room at HOCHANDA, in between shows on Tuesday, but for some reason, I couldn't add images on my iPad so had to abandon the post.. very frustrating!

This is one of my demo cards from my shows at the beginning of the week and I absolutely love it!

It is also my giveaway card for you this week too :-)

I've used the gorgeous midnight blue pearl foundations card on this and the Foundations Pearl Cardstock, along with the Bright White, Milk and Coconut White are quite possibly my fave!

Here is what I used (with links to them on my www in case you 'need' them)

  9. Good afternoon Phill,
    Between Sue's dies and your stamps you have a marriage made in heaven with this bonnie card. For some reason it reminds me of a frosty winters night when all the stars are out in the sky and it is that dark midnight blue sky, so for me this card just encapsulated it all. Thank you flower for a stunning card that i'm sure more than me will see that winter nights influence in,
    Crafty hugs
