Joyeux Noël

Means soemthing like Joyous Christmas, which I thought would go well with the One layer Challenge over at Less is More with something French.

I used a Cas-ual Fridays stampset  (lovely snowflake) for both sentiment and image.

I sued Versamark to stamp them and then Wow! embossing powders. For the snowflake I chose Atlantic seaspray and for the sentiment I chose Mistletoe magic.

Atlanic seaspray has an opague base of a lightblue/greaan powder mixed with lovely gold glitter, which  gives it a kind of anitgue look, you knwo when copper goes green? that's what it reminds me of, I think the effect is better on bigger solid images though.

The mistle toe magic has a transparant sage green base with all kinds of colourfulglitter  mixed in like black but also
silver and more I can't make out ;-).
