Lovely as A Brownstone Tree

I love how this technique looks like Martha's Brownstone glitter (but with iridescent ice instead.) This uses a mix of BascGrey papers: (Figgy Pudding line) "Silent Night" FIG-1011 and Glisten/Avalanche (Fruitcake line) FRU-594. I've stamped the Close to Cocoa card stock with mellow moss ink. The sentiment is embossed on Blue Bayou paper with clear ep. (There's some chocolate chip paper in those layers too...)

I 'd better get off the computer; I'm gettin' "the what for" for blogging my brains out instead of taking care of business! LOL.

Oh, Mel, this is beautiful! I love the glitter and the very antique feel of it. I get dirty looks when I'm on the computer too long, but now I have the perfect comeback. "Hold on, honey. I'm blogging my brains out."

Thanks for the chuckle!
