Rudolph Day - July

Hello and thank you for your visit.

This is my card for the Rudolph Day Challenge - July
Maureen holds a challenge each month from 25th till the last day of the month where we show our Christmas cards.

I used a Tattered Lace die given to me as part of a birthday present last year.

Once the die was cut the card was very quick to make.

 I added some glitter inside the bauble and round the edge of the blue matt.  A couple of punched snowflakes a few gems and a little colouring in spaces with a gold gel pen and I just needed a sentiment.

The photo of my card has a bluey tinge to it but I really did just use white and dark blue card!

What a super die and you've made a great card with it. Strange how colours can change for no apparent reason in photos or scans.

Hi Barb,
Happy Rudolf Days.
your card is very lovely and that bauble is so pretty, and has a very pretty scene in it too.
Love the colours used.
Thank you for joining the Rudolf Challenge.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L. GD

Beautiful card Barb. I think sometimes blue casts a reflection onto the white card around it and makes it look blue, it does that to me. I've tried fiddling with the white balance on my camera but everything I try seems to make things worse!
