Charmed Christmas

Yes it is 90F outside and I am making Christmas Cards. My inspiration for this card is two fold. I tried to make a card using only turquoise blue and white, plus an added charm accent. I used Hero Arts – Designers Snowflakes stamp. I heated embossed them with white embossing powder then using Distress Inks – Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass to bring in the blues. The sentiment is from MFT.
