It's a Blue Christmas (Saturated Canary image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

This is my 2nd card for the evening, hope you don't get sick of me as I have 3 to post tonight all up hehe. I have used an image from Saturated Canary for this card. I printed the image in a grey so I wanted to keep it quite fresh and soft in colour. I used a lot of glue and glitter for this card, I love glitter these days hehe. I handmade the banners and distressed them then added my sentiment with matching coloured alphas.
