Hampton Art DCWV Blog Hop

For my card, I used papers from DCWV's Heirloom Christmas Stack. The stamps are from Hampton Art's Graphic 45 Nutcracker series. I used Clearsnap ink (Colorbox Metallic Q) I also used some rub-ons by Royal Brush and a flower by Prima Marketing. Here are the products I used plus what you can win. :)
