Merry Christmas

It's been so strange this year, for the first time I am really organised. It is Christmas Eve and the table for 20 is set for tomorrow night. Dessert is made, cookies done, presents all under the tree, turkey stuffed (with help from a live-in Chef) and I even had time to make a very quick card. This card is for my Mum as I wanted to make her one with a religious message. I'm entering this card into Ellen Hutson's Hero Arts Clear Stamps challenge and also CASual Friday's 10 minute card (Dashing thru' the holidays). This card is one layer and so easy to make. The cardstock was sponged with 4 shades of distress inks. The stamps were stamped in black and then sprayed with Perfect Pearls. Sorry about the poor quality of photo -was been taken at night and my Nikon has finally been expired!
Merry Christmas everyone and enjoy the Festive season. I'll be back briefly tomorrow to show my table settings for tomorrow night!

Here's another shot taken the next morning! You can see the shimmer from the Perfect Pearls!
