Christmas card number 1

Our September challenge at Country View Crafts is Numbers - use numbers in your project whichever way you chose. For my first creation I have made a my first Christmas card. I wanted to use my new snowflakes layering stencil.
 A distress paint marbled background was created and once dry I added some ink through the stencil.
My numbers and poinsettia were painted with aged mahogany distress paint and I added some puff embossing powder to the numbers and corners of my card.
I will be back on Thursday with my second numbers creation - not Christmas this time!
Thanks for visiting
