Hooray, I've done it!

Hello, good morning, hope all's well with you,
Today I've made a Christmas card..............
 ....................and I managed to get my watermark on the card. There was one step that I'd forgotten, linking the pictures but now I've got it right,  so you can see my new watermark. It's only taken a few months (well maybe a little longer) but I got there in the end:0)
Today's card uses Art Journey stamps and I would like to enter it into their challenge, 'use tape'. I have used Tim Holtz tissue tape.
I also used my new Martha Stewart  snowflake punch, I love the shape of this one it's more like a splodge than a snowflake. 

Papermania vellum on top of the sentiment, mmm a bit of an experiment. The sentiment overpowered the picture of the little girl and I'm hoping the vellum has subdued it a little.
Okay, lots to do today and the sun's shining, it's beautiful, have a great day everyone:0)xx

Hi MC - what a beautiful Xmas card. Love the layer of vellum - a great way to soften the text. The MS snowflake is delish., and I love your soft colouring on the image.
Have a wonderful day (thanks so much for your recent comments by the way).
Hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Gorgeou card MC, congratulations - it took me a year to make a watermark and add it to my cards - now I don't like it so need to do another grrrr..!!
Gorgeous card, love that beautiful image and the vellum over the sentiment is perfect (must remember that!!). I'm trying to persuade myself not to buy that snowflake punch but am failing miserably, especially now I've seen yours - it's fabulous.
