My Mind's Eye Christmas glitter

I'm just scraping in with an entry for the My Mind's Eye blog challenge 33 card featuring this sketch:

 The challenge rule is to use at least 80% MME products. Everything used for this card is MME except the sentiment and the turquoise aqua gems which were from Poundland.

The papers are all offcuts from some I'd used earlier, all taken originally from the MME Christmas Glitter Book (I so love those papers).

Edges were distressed with stormy sky and broken china DIs. The border strips were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and the flower shapes were die cut with nestabilities.


This is my first card of the week for Pixie's crafty snippets 13 because all papers were offcuts.

This is also for:
