March Christmas Card Club

This month’s Christmas Card Club card was inspired by the girls over at Jingle Belles.  

While their “Hark the Hearald Angels Sing” challenge is over, I was inspired to use a beautiful musical notes background stamp from Impression Obsession.  The main image is from Stampendous – colored with copic markers.  The card is vintaged up with distress inks and glitzed up with some loose glitter, Nuvo drops and prills from US ArtQuest.

Thanks for stopping by!
