A splash of blue

This card is for 52 Christmas card throwdown July colour challenge - black, white and a splash of blue - also another for Bloggers challenge colour splash: black, white and a splash of one colour of your choice.

Once again the background paper is Memory Box yuletide. The black and white picture was rescued from a card received a couple of years ago, so this is another for Charisma cardz 27: recycle. I've added some clear and blue gems to the Christmas tree and matted the picture on to blue mirror card.



This is also for:

Through the craftroom door: Christmas in July
The pink elephant 156: Christmas in July
Lollipop crafts 84: Christmas in July
Hooked on crafts 22: Christmas in July
Little red wagon 141: Christmas in July
2 sisters 100: Christmas in July (I didn't go for the option!)
Totally Gorjuss 140: It's Christmas
Crafter's companion 26: ho ho ho Christmas
