Christmas in August













It's been a nice day here, but there is a chill in the air. Last night it was cold enough for the heating to be on!!!! Tomorrow we have a heavy rain and flooding warning.


On to my card, this is simple and therefore my entry for Less is More using the colours of my national flag. I am Scottish so it is blue and white from the saltire.


I used Woodware stamps, Nesties label, Cuttlebug embossing folder, white pearl embossing powder and Stickles.


I am entering his card into the following challenges:-
