Merry Christmas

Welcome back!  Oh, wait, we were the ones that were on vacation. : )  But now we are back with another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  Since it is still holiday time, we are making it nice and easy for you: Anything Goes!  I was woefully short on Christmas cards this year so I decided to get a head start on next year's cards.  Plus, I hadn't had a chance to use this beautiful snowflake stamp, yet.
I started by stamping the snowflake on the background in both a light gray and ocean tides green.  I stamped the focal snowflake in the same colors offsetting them just a bit so it gives a shadow effect.  I love the pops of red in this color combo, so fun!  Come and play along, I can't wait to see what you come up with.
