Wishing you .....

This is a very quick card for the Less is More challenge this week. It's one layer week and the theme is Snow.

I have used a Stamps by Chloe stamp called wishing you a Merry Christmas, I stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with some Platinum Sparkle embossing powder - it is really lovely and sparkly in real life but the photographs don't really show it.


I embossed an oval around the outside of my stamped image to add a little interest.



I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More Week 202 - One Layer
Fantasy Stampers Challenge 25 - CAS Christmas
Christmas Card Challenge 2  - CAS Design

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.
