Distress it with Sparkles Christmas Challenges

Hi everyone, I hope you're all well.

Well the golf tournament went well yesterday. It was lovely seeing Alan's friends again and really special that one of his closer friends won for the first time.

I had my cortisone injection in my shoulder yesterday so it's really painful today. Hopefully it'll start to feel better after 48 hours...really hope so. I think today's gonna be a long day! I've got 5 cards I need to make too.

Anyhow, there's a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges.
Our theme is Distress it.

Here's my little piece of inspiration...

I've used a white wash card with a blue core and embossed a snowman using an old brass stencil. I then sanded it to reveal the blue. I've also distressed the edges of the paper using a Tim Holtz tool. I've matted using black card to make the backing papers pop. I've also added some ribbon to the panel sitting under the image. The sentiment is from a Party Paws rubber stamp.

We have two lovely sponsors this month...
£10 including free P & P


Surprise prize

I hope you'll join us.
