Merriest Christmas! Viva La Verve - Week 4

Good Evening all!

It's Friday and a bank holiday weekend too - woo!

I've fallen behind again with the Viva La Verve sketches, but that was because (I'll be honest) this sketch threw me.  I saw it last Friday and really liked it, but then when I tried to design something I drew a total blank - typical! 

Today I decided to sit down and make myself come up with something and I'm actually quite pleased with how it turned out!  Once I stopped obsessing over it, the creative juices started flowing :)

I decided the best idea was to go with what I know - Clean And Simple!  I'm trying to build up my Christmas card collection at the moment so that seemed like a good place to start. 

This is what I came up with;

(Apologies for the poor quality photographs, the weather here is SHOCKING at the moment, and typically, the heavens opened as I picked up my camera, of course!)

If you click to enlarge the photographs you'll be able to see the snowflakes in the background.  I stamped them in white and then embossed with a glitter embossing powder.  Obviously, it's much more effective in real life!  There is also this glittery heat embossing on the large white snowflake.

Other than that I think that the card is pretty self expanatory!?

I hope you like it :)

Right, I can hear my glass of wine calling so it's a short and sweet post today :)  Enjoy your Friday night!
