Another Blue Christmas Card

I am normally a very traditional red and green Christmas card maker but this year the blues seem to be coming out more and more.  Again I have used one of the cute Lili of the Valley images that I got at the NEC of a cute little girl trying to hang the sparkly star on the top of the tree.  I have used my Tim Holtz distressing tool and then inked the edges to accentuate the distressed edge.  In various places on the image I have highlighted with Stickles glitter blue.  I have used some scraps of paper again leftover from last Christmas.  I used my Martha Stweart lattice punch and punched an edge with silver mirri card and plain blue card.  I added some blue lace to give some texture.  The card is finished with various flower, brads and a Bizzy Becs ticket sentiment which I have edged with Stickles glitter glue.

This card fits the following challenges:

Lili of the Valley - Glitter and glitz
Wild Orchid - Blue Christmas
Flourishes - Just do it
Treehouse Stamps - Go glitter
City Crafter - Little Children
Anything goes - Let it snow
If the Shoe Fits Scrap It - Shine

ABC Christmas - X is for Xmas and option of flowers
Paper Cutz - Christmas project using bling
Rainbow Lady's - Edge it
Paper Romance - Your favourite things - distressing, flowers and punches
Frosted Designs - Distressing
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Christmas with no red or green
Crafty Emma - Lace
Flourishes - Glitter
Scrapbook Sisters - Christmas tree
Pile it On - Winter means
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Distressing
One Stitch at a Time - Choose a season or event
Craft Your Days Away - Christmas tree
Bizzy Becs - Cute and sweet
Paperplay - Let it snow
Totally Gorjuss - Not so traditional Christmas
