A Clean and Simple Christmas Card

So here I am again. This time I have a Christmas card which isn't a DT card and I am using one of my favourite Christmas stamps, Eira from CC Designs. I've had this stamp for quite some time now but always use it year after year as I just love it.

For my card this time I decided to make a clean and simple one and so stamped my imaged directly on the main white card. I coloured Eira with my new Letraset FlexMarkers which, lucky me, I had won last week :) and then inked up the edges with blue distress ink. In my mind I had intended to stop there but I'm not good with the inking so I stamped up lots of snowflakes to hide my boo boos. I then finished it off with the sentiment from my MSE Stamp set and three gems and randomly glitter stickles all around.
I really loved how it turned out.

These are my challenges for my card.
