Rip it Up

Where oh where has the summer gone. I can't believe that it is the last day of August already which means that we are now less than 4 months to Christmas.
 
Over on the ABC Christmas Challenge blog we have another new challenge starting today. The theme this time around is
 
R for Rip it Up
 
 
For my  card, I decided to dig into the inks and play.
 
 
I started by embossing the snowflake design and then rubbing on Distress inks in various shades of teal and purple. After tearing off the edge of the matted piece I played around with some embellishment and finally came across these old acrylic snowflakes so I pulled out the alcohol inks and dabbed them up to match with the background.
 
A few simple gems and a sentiment finish the whole thing off nicely.
 
I hope that you will join in on the fun.

Happy Crafting!
