Birds and houses
A close up of the file I used:
I'm excited to be doing up some Christmas projects this month, a head start before December comes. I used part of last month's counterfeit kit and did some wet embossing with the cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder and some versamark ink and clear embossing powder for a fun look that really brings out the snowflakes. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you join in and play along this week with us over at Jo's
