Victorian Christmas

Thought I would try to make a Victorian card using the Holly GIrl Digital Stamp and Paper Pack from Coosty Creations available through the StitchyBear Digial Outlet. Spellbinder dies were used for the plain circle shapes, cArt_Decorative Oval_Frames for the digi  and sentiment mounts and Impression Obsession Snowflakes for the snowflakes which were cut with cream glitter paper. The digi was coloured with ProMarkers I added blue lace round the two snowflake blue paper circles to give the card a Victorian appearance, then added the glitter snowflakes on top.  The digi and sentiment mounts were finished off with Platinum Liquid Pearls.  The sentiment on the card says, 'This season, the best gift of all is your friendship'.

Here is a close-up of the coloured digi.
