Pocket Card in Silver and Blue

The challenge this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges is to make a card in silver and blue and we have a new sponsor this week, Lacy Sunshine.  I chose to use their digital stamps called  Christmas Boo to make my pocket card. 

The directions for this pocket card can be found here.   In used Copic Markers and a pencil crayon to colour my image. Once I had my had my pocket folded I used white embossed snowflake paper for the inside of the card.  My tag is stamped with a "We wish you a Merry Christmas" stamp from my collection of unmounted stamps. I trimmed my cards with some ribbon and added some snowflakes to complete the card.

Thank you for stopping by.  Hop over to the Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge and see the cards that the design team  has created to inspire you.
