Add a Little Jingle

Hello.  Welcome.  Just a little something to flex the mojo.  I've used Stamplorations sketch to make a non-traditional Christmas card.  

This was one of those impossible to photograph projects!!  Too much shine and not enough contrast.  Looks good in the real though LOL.  I cut a pale blue card base using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle.  I stamped my border using three stamps from Stamplorations Mixed Media Grunge set and embossed in silver.  I also embossed the edges of the card.  I cut a stencil using Spellbinders star die and added Imagination Crafts Silver Sparkle Medium.  The sentiment is a silver sticker.
