Inspired Christmas card

I surf a lot of blogs, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I have discovered the wonderful Jennifer McGuire's and the fantastic Kathy Racoosin. If you haven't had the chance to visit either one of these ladies blogs. You need to ASAP they have such awesome projects! Seriously talented :) They both inspired my card below.

I used Jennifer's block stamping background technique. I inked my acrylic block with distress ink in stormy sky, faded jeans, chipped sapphire, sprayed generously with water and stamped.

Kathy is the master of the white gel pen and she inspired me to create the falling "snow" on my background. Here is a close up of it. 
Kathy is also having an amazing giveaway on her blog. Check out this awesome blog candy
