I for Inky

Good Morning, I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful spring.
 
It is the start of a new ABC Christmas Challenge.
 
The theme this time around is
 
I for Ink
 
so we hope that you will pull out your favorites and join us
 
 
 
For my card I have opted to play with Distress Inks and a pre-cut card blank. After stamping and heat embossing the snowflake background I have layered on the Distress. For the Snowflake medallion, I inked the stamp in the same colours of Distress before stamping and then layered the image on a simple scalloped mat.  The sentiment was heat embossed on vellum that I dug out of my stash.
