The Magic of Christmas

Well as it happens we are getting a few flurries of snow as we speak....even though it is spring. It is to warm up the next few days so it isn't anything that is to last, but it is getting old to see the white stuff at the end of March.  Digi stamp 4 Joy has a Christmas progressive Challenge and this month the stamp was a grouping of sentiments.  What I did was to put the sentiments over a digital background paper from TLC, and then added some Ice Stickles to the snowflakes. 

Patterned Paper:  TLC, Create - Starry Christmas Night Papers 2; Paper Studio
Cardstock:  Bazzil; Recollections
Sentiment:  Digi stamp 4 Joy - mp128, March Progressive Stamp of the month

Ice Stickles
Ribbon:  Really Reasonable Ribbon

This is so pretty! What a great idea to overlay the words on that peaceful winter scene. I agree about the snow at the end of March, we just had a bit on Wednesday and I'm ready to be done with it. Thanks for playing with CSAYL.
