The Paper Shelter Blue Christmas card

Hi everyone, 

I have made a new Christmas card using one of The Paper Shelter digis. I love using their digis so even though I have already made my card for this week's GDT spot for their challenge this Wednesday, I couldn't resist making more Christmas cards with their other digi stamps! I do have another one to upload when I get a chance. The truth with this card is I actually smudged some ink on the sack accidentally after I'd coloured the whole digi and die cut it but instead of throwing it in the bin I finally decided to add a little flower hoping no-one would notice lol.

FWAB used:
Assorted pearls
