Some White French Hens

Happy Tuesday!

Hope you are having a good day today! I have another busy day with errands and chores around the house to finish. But before I get to all of that, I do have a card to share with you.

Yesterday was the 3rd day of Christmas celebration over at Cuttlebug Challenges and Layers of Color is sponsoring with a donation of 3 of their Rise and Shine art stamp sets! To enter to win a free stamp set all you need to do is visit Layers of Color and sign up for their newsletter and follow their blog to stay up to date on the lasted information. Then hop back over to Cuttlebug Challenges and leave them a comment saying that you have done these two things and you are entered. Pretty easy!

I've created this white on white version of 3 French Hens using the Rise and Shine stamp set and my Cuttlebug and snowflake embossing folder.

I've distressed the edges of all the layers so that it makes the white on white easier to see and I like the texture too. The layers have been embossed and then sprayed with glimmer mist. I created faux snow under the chicks with glitter and glue. Then embellished with ribbons, acetate and glitter snowflakes, and rhinestone and pearl sticky gems.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Sketch Saturday: sketch/layout
Stamptacular Sunday: No red or Green Holiday cards
The Pink Elephant: Winter/Christmas
Kaboodle Doodles: Sparkling Winter
Secret Crafter: Snow

Thanks for popping on by today! If you get a minute, please check out the Cuttlebug Challenge and visit Layers of Color! Have a great day, happy stamping! :)
