Christmas Card a week #4

 Hi All, here is my 4th Christmas card for the year, I will be so happy when November rolls around and I have these all done!  I used an image from Gecko Galz Christmas Chic collage set along with a sheet from the Gecko Galz Chocolate Box Paper collection.  I cut the fancy frame on my KNK Zing and used some Color Box Pewter ink to highlight it since I did not have the right shade of gray.  The Starburst jewels are from Pizzazz Aplenty,  and the ribbon is from my stash.  To save ink I did not print the liner in the red paper this time instead I embossed the gray paper liner to pick up on the snow flakes on the gray background.  Well that's it, thanks for stopping by.  ~Diane

  7. I love that vintage image - I must check out Gecko Galz! You have chosen a fabulous colour scheme to go with it . I love grey right now and, although unexpected on a Christmas card, it works really well. Love the way you've echoed the snowflakes on your envelope lining.
    Thanks a lot for joining in with my Festive 48. Hope you can link up again next week. Marina http://myperfectlifeuk.blogspot.co.uk
