Simply 'Merry Christmas'

Christmas is just around the corner and I was still in need
of more Christmas cards so...
I got out my old Tim Holtz Holiday Knit stencil
to use as a background for my CAS card.

It's the last Challenge of the Year at
and it's our
This is where you use pencils,markers,watercolours,brushes, inks
anything that Makes a Mark. You get the drift!
I used White Texture Paste on my stencil background
  and some Arctic White Lustre Powder (Thanks Kylie)
on white card stock shadowed by red 
on my Merry Christmas Die from
CUTplorations and attached to vellum.

Hope you get time to play with us this week
and I see you in our Gallery.
Thanks for dropping in and a 
Big Thank You for all your kind comments
you made on my posts for Addicted to Stamps and More. 
I'll be back in the New Year with 
more inspiration for your pleasure.
