Christmas Elegance

Okay, now this may very well be  my FAVORITE stamp from the new Christmas catalog from Penny Black--it's just sooo elegant!
4206L Snowflake and Holly
Available for preorder from Mementos HERE
Available in Mementos Bundle of Savings deal HERE

The stamped image was colored with Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pens and then distressed with Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  Then I heavily flicked this with water creating the water spots.  Photo corners from Fiskar's punch.  Background papers distressed with Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Pumice Stone, Fired Brick and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. 

And here's what's happening on the Memento's blog today. 
We've got another video for ya!


Thanks again for visiting!
See you tomorrow with another Christmas card!

Another beautiful Christmas card! I can't believe you are getting me so excited about Christmas and it's August! Ask my hubby, I am usually so Christmassed out with all of the Department stores songs and decorations by the time Thanksgiving comes around, I am almost relieved when Christmas is over. So kudos for making it so beautiful again and making me want to stamp away to "Let it Snow"
