PTI December Blog Hop

Now that the hustle & bustle of Christmas has come & gone, I just might be able to start contributing to my blog on a more consistent basis. Couldn't resist Pti's Blog Hop this month. The challenge is to tie up a paper crafting project with string.

December Inspiration
 My entry is a simple Christmas card I made using the Stained Glass stamp set and half & half  die cut from vellum. I used copics to color the stained glass and embossed the sentiment with gold filigree embossing powder/


Here's an upclose shot:

Your stained glass looks so pretty in the pastel green and blue - framed in the pretty sparkles and toped with the looped twine!
