The lovely image is by Mo Manning coloured with copics with added glitter and bling The background cardstock is embossed as all my Christmassy papers are stowed in the attic and it's far too hot to go up there!

Oh my goodness Chris! What Amazing colouring! Absolutely amazing!!!!! And your sky.... I definitely need you to share some tips next time I see you! Hope that's not too far away,Julie x
(my lace was held with a touch from the tape/glue runner,most stays on the dispenser but the thicker areas of lace take it,I taped the ends round thr back of the embossed front then trimmed the bulk away) hope this makes sense,x
