White Christmas

This was a very quick card I made inspired by some fab designs I found on Pinterest!
Loved making this as it was so quick and yet looks really effective!

The raised panel is embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder and then punched showflakes out of, and backed with silver mirri card. Sentiment is by Craftwork cards to finish off.
