Blue Christmas!!!

Here is a card I put together from bits and bobs that were on my desk.
Background paper is a sheet left over from one of last years Dovecraft collections. I used Bazzill-Rain for the circle and embossed it with one of my new CB folders.
The tree is cut from silver mirror card and embossed with Swiss Dots CB folder but when I put it on the card I thought the silver was a little harsh so attacked it with an Aquaramine chalk ink pad and then a white ink pad with a sprinkle of white embossing powder. It now looks gorgeously frosty. I will be trying that!!!
Joy sticker is DCWV and ribbon is American Crafts (I think).

Card orders are all delivered now so after tea I will be able to play....yay!!! I still have lots of bits left on my desk so I will probably try and use them up instead of shoving them into a box for use later...........and never using them.

Bye for now.
