Ismaki 09 #5 & Fab's X-mas Challenge!

I've had a bit more 'mojo' of late so I've managed to join in this weeks Ismaki challenge and start off my Christmas card making (I can't believe I just said that!) and enter this into Fab's Christmas challenge. When I saw this sketch I thought of this little trio set of stamps and thought I'd make a '50s'-ish retro style card, and do the circle a bit offset and added some funky snowflake shapes. The option is to use a heart and I couldn't fit one in anywhere, I would have looked a bit odd, oh well! I hope you like it!


Supplies-
Stamps - 'Christmas Blocks' from Stamps Away, coloured with Whispers and Sakura Stardust
Paper - DCWV 'Rose Tinted Christmas', others from stash
Embossing - onto blue pearl paper with the Swiss dots folder
Ribbon - stash
Gems - Create & Craft
Sentiment - made on the PC
Snowflakes - Cuttlebug 'Asterisks' die


I've got to dash off to work now, (probably should've left already!) so I'll pop round your blogs tonight!
