merry christmas 33

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! In case you missed it, Prima is currently celebrating 12 Days of Christmas on the Prima blog. There are many beautiful and inspiring projects for you to check out and a variety of challenges to play along with as well of many prizes to be won! Check it out HERE.
Being a Prima DT member myself, I am ineligible to win a prize but I still enjoy joining along regardless :) I created a mixed media style Christmas card for my dear husband which features a variety of Prima products.
Once I embossed the background, I painted it using Prima black gesso followed with Prima Mica Powders: Teal, Rust, Copper. The wooden snowflake came from a local craft store. I painted it using black gesso and Prima Teal Mica Powder:
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
the Mixed Media Place Creative Gym Exercise #14 challenge where we are challenged to create a Christmas themed card, tag or ATC project:
the Merry Monday Christmas Card challenge where we are challenged to create a Christmas card with a reindeer on it:
Many thanks for stopping by~ I hope you enjoyed my card!
Be Sweet ;)
