The Polar Express.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I have a busy day ahead of me today.Washing, ironing, cleaning.Lots of cards to make in advance for next week, visitors coming and then its time for my yearly gas boiler etc service on Monday so my whole craft corner has got to be moved from its home so the gas man can access the gas meter :(
Wish me luck moving it all as hubby is at work and he normally helps.
So enough of my ramblings and on to my card which i am entering into the following challenges:
1.Creative Creations Challenge - Challenge 20 - Fabulous sketch
2.Crafts Too Challenge - Challenge 4 - Christmas - create/depict a christmas scene.

Products used are:
White card
First Edition silent night papers
Distress tool
Roses
Stickles stardust
White acrylic paint
Stampendous cling stamp - train postcard
flexmarkers

Love how this stamp looks once its stamped, it has got a fabric effect.
I have used Glacer and Cloud blue flexmarkers to add  a little colour.

and a sideways view.
Thanks so much for popping by, means a lot :D
Hugs Nic.xx

Hello Nic, gorgeous card - the understated colouring is perfect for a winter themed card and the pop of flowers is all the embellishment it needs. Love that stamp, it's now own my to-buy list because it will be perfect for the train enthusiasts in the family :) Many thanks for all your kind comments - I appreciate them very much. Hugs, Elizabeth xx
