Untraditional....

Christmas cards are some of my favorite cards to make.  I love taking traditional Christmas images and kinda "tweaking" them.... Again, I am using the Christmas Star from Penny Black here and decided to go all "Blue Christmas" with it.  I hope you like it!

                                                                  
I am not sure about the placement of the 'bling" but the vellum, which I love using, was not cooperating and staying in place.  Thus, some awkwardly placed bling to hold it down.  ;-(

Thank for the visit!  I hope that you are having a good day!

Be well,
Sheila
