"Traditional Christmas Colors".This means we want to see Reds, Greens, Golds, Silver and White - a comination of any of these colors!
To add some sparkle to the image I went over the whole image using Hero Arts Irridescent watercolor medium that came with the My Monthly Hero October kit (still available here). The glitter is barely visible in the photo above, although very shimmery in real life, but the photo below shows too much shine, it's not really this much in real life, just the right amount of sparkle.
Not sure if you can tell, but I used the Penny Black background stamp Christmas Story to add some seasonal words to the background, using Antique Linen distress ink. Before adhering the layers to the card base, I used a distressing tool to distress the edges. A handy tool, but if you are careful you can also do this with scissors. The striped designer paper is from one of Stampin Up's retired Christmas paper packs.

We have some great prizes this month again at Penny Black and More, and we would love for you to come join us! Remember, you may use any brand of stamps, just no digi stamps, and stamping must be the focal point of your creation. The only exception are Penny Black Stickeroos, but no digis and no dies as a focal point.
