I is for Indigo and Ice

Good morning, I cannot believe how fast this year is going. It is time for another ABC Christmas challenge and this week we are already at the letter "I". Before I tell you all about our next challenge, I want to thank all of you who participated in our Hotspot challenge. It was really inspiring to visit your blogs and see your beautiful cards.

This week it is Samantha's turn to host and she has chosen the theme,

I for Indigo, Ice and Inspiration

Samantha has also chosen a photo to inspire you.


You may interpret the photo in any way that you wish but you must create a Christmas card.

We have the Fabulous Brenda as our sponsor for this challenge

Get inspired at http://www.stampingwithbrenda.com
Brenda Dean is a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator. Brenda is giving out a fabulous prize for this challenge - Prize - One free Month of The Paper Society! Members of The Paper Society (including our winner) get exclusive videos and tutorials teaching you techniques, seasonal projects, mini-albums, cards and more.

I have not done any stamping on my card this time around. Instead, I have worked with the gorgeous papers from the Bo Bunny collection Midnight Frost. The colours in this line fit the challenge perfectly.  I have used one of the background papers and a quote from the cutout sheet as the basis for my card. I then added some shimmery cardstock, rickrack and silver pearls for some sparkle and bling and an icy touch.

I hope that you will stop by the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous creations from the rest of the design team and our lovely guest designers Brenda (our sponsor) and Shelly from Feline Playful.
After that, it's your turn. I hope that you will share with us your lovely icy creations.

This card will be entered into the following challenges;
