Hello there!  I've gotten a bit behind with blogging all the holiday cards that I made.  So, hopefully you won't mind seeing them after the fact. 

This card took some crazy turns.  I almost thought it was ruined at one point.  I splattered the Mica Spray Stain over the background and didn't allow enough time for it to dry completely.  So, I ended up smearing it a little.  I covered that by using Mica Crayon over the crackled, stenciled background.  And it ended up blending very well.  So, in the end I was pretty happy with it.  I kept thinking it looked like peppermint ice cream.  LOL!  It was my first time using the Mica Spray, Crayons and Frosted Crystal products.  Too much fun!
