If you came here from KATHY'S BLOG, then you are right on track!!!



My Christmas message to my family is simple......*Rejoice*!!!  I chose to ink up the super cute newly released November Set called The Babe. The main image was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and finished off creating the *Cracked Glass* technique. Next I embellished the card with some edge distressed DP from the My Mind's Eye Breeze Collection, a Doily, a Poinsettia on the side, some Red Striped Ribbon with some Metallic Gold String, a Button and some Gold Pearls. At last I added the sentiment.

Thank you for taking the time to hop on by!!! Your next stop is my sweet friend BETTY's BLOG.

I'll be back tomorrow with a new card...see you then,

                                                                  Hugs, ~Silke~

What a beautiful holiday card. I love the touch of color against the black and white. The crackled glass technique, the doily, and the distressing give it a shabby chic feel. Gorgeous holiday card!!
