Merry Monday Challenge

I have missed the Merry Monday Challenge for the last couple of week's and I'm so glad I found time to make a card using this week's sketch. I have also cased Kristie's card from last week's challenge. I had never heard of "ghost stamping" and loved the look on her gorgeous card. So I had to give it a try!! I like how this turned out, even though my card doesn't look quite like Kristie's. Guess I need to practice this technique some more. :-)

Here's the sketch we were to use this week and my card.

I stamped the large Filigree snowflake and the medium Filigree Snowflake images from DRS Designs, first in white and then in Night of Navy over top, turning the images just a bit. The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink and layered on the same kraft CS. The banners are embossed with the CB snowflake folder. A couple of rhinestone snowflakes were added to complete the look.  Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.
