Christmas Wishes

Here for another challenge at Stamping Sensations where the theme this month is Christmas.  I love old fashioned Christmas cards and as soon as I saw this Stampendous stamp I had to have it. The background is inked up embossing folder, love the wedgewood look it gives, there is lots of glitter which doesn't really show up on here. The challenge this month is Christmas and our sponsor is  Little Claire who are offering a very generous £35 voucher for their store. Go along to the challenge and see the lovely examples from the design team.


  1. You have already said the word Joan, that china was exactly what came to mind when I first saw your card. It's beautiful.

    Hope you have a good Sunday.

  3. This is so beautiful Joan! The embossed background does look like Wedgwood and you have coloured the stamp perfectly! What a beautiful stamp too - love how the scene is framed! Hope I am not to blame for you spending too much at Inkylicious!

  4. This is an absolute classic, Joan! Stunning background, and such a gorgeous scene, beautifully coloured and with real depth. It looks as though you could just step into the picture. Love it!
