Dots & Stripes @ Christmas Card Challenges

Morning all :) 

Again I am gladly playing guest along with the girls at

#29 Dots and Stripes
is the challenge this week :)
And it is a theme that can work so well with Christmas so please do play along!

I really got my hands dirty this week and dug out my Stampin Up Snow Swirled set for this card.

I am loving the blues and browns of this card!  The papers are digital and again, from an unknown source.  I used my spotty dotty embossing folder, ribbon lace and tiny snowflakes from my stash and the large snowflake was cut with the Cameo that I then glittered and blinged up.  And of course, everything got a touch of distress inks around the edges to give a vintage / shabby feel :)   Even though there is the blingy snowflake I think this would be a great males Christmas card so I've earmarked this little fellow to be off to the girls godfather.  

I am seriously making a dent in my Christmas cards 
and you could be too if you play along with us at 
We would love to see you, so please do come join us!
