School Colors for Christmas

The current Impression Obsession challenge is School Spirit, but you don't have to make a school themed project.  I chose to use my high school colors of blue & gold with two of my favorite IO stamps--Cabin, H1830 & Christmas Magic, B3585.  I stamped the image in PTI Enchanted Evening & sponged with Spring Rain. The sentiment is gold embossed.  The tree limbs were highlighted with a very fine crystal glitter using a glue pen.  The effect is really pretty IRL.

I'm also entering the challenge at One Layer Christmas CardAnything Goes at SSS Monday & A Blog Named Hero One Layer Challenge.  Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
