CHNC challenge 291: use a sentiment

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 291: use a sentiment. Please click on the link to see what the challenge is all about and, hopefully, join in - this week there are six sponsors giving prizes to randomly chosen winners ... but you've got to be in it to win it!

This is my card, using snowflake grunge digital papers kindly supplied by Lozzy , one of this week's sponsors. And Lozzy is also a guest for the challenge and has made a beautiful card - please go and have a look.

I used three different papers from the snowflake grunge bundle, tearing two of them to go across the bottom of the card with the Merry Christmas ribbon wrapped around. I stamped the lovely snowy postcard inked with memento rich cocoa ink, tearing around this and brushing the edges with fired brick distress ink, also using some of the ink to emphasise some red parts on the buildings. This was then tucked into the papers at the bottom.

This is also for:
