The idea just pop in my head so had to do it. First I was going to do a shaker card it look so wrong. Had a not so good week so really  surpised myself that found time to do this card. Ordered this new stamp from Lili of the Valley wanted to play with it. First of all I embossed the back ground with my cuttlebug snowflakes folder. I think most of my christmas backgrounds are going to be this. Coloured her in with myh promarkers and glitter ( christmas not christmas without loads of bing). Used my nessies for the layers, found old wearth from last years stash. Hope you like my card
