Simply Christmas...

...a very simple, one layer card.

Challenge 33 over at "CHNC" asked for a 'Clean & Simple' Christmas card - so here it is...
I used Post-its to mask an area of the card and then applied 'old paper' & 'antique linen' ink to create a background.
The image is a Clarity stamp that I double stamped in 'frayed burlap'. The sentiment is from a DoCrafts set of Christmas Urban stamps.
As it is a Christmas card I had to add a bit of bling to give it a frosty feel.

I would also like to enter this as a second entry for "Less is More".................

Wow, this is gorgeous! Love the frost Toni, gives it a real Christmas touch! You need to grab another button Tony! I purchased more LOTV stamps last night and I BLAME IT ON YOU! Looking at the site for the name of the stamp I used for the challenge and saw some new stamps I needed/wanted/had to have...etc. Yup, your fault, AGAIN! LOL

Beautiful, elegant, very classy card. I had difficulty with the idea of one layer, I went CAS, but I like yours very much. I really like the efect of a frosting of ice/snow on the trees!
