Ho Ho Ho

 I finally had a lovely day off work yesterday where I wasn't too exhausted to craft so I made the most of it and this was what I rustled up...

I started by die cutting the stitched letters then added festive berries Distress Ink.

The stamps are MFT Merry Wishes by Stacey Yacula and have been coloured with Prisma pencils and fussy cut out.

I stamped a few additional images as well as some Uniko snowflakes in pearlescent silver to keep it subtle.

The sentiment is from the same MFT set stamped in grey and to finish I added a festive flurry of sparkle... completely invisible to a camera lens!
