Winter Blues

Evening All
Well that warm snap didn't last long did it! Although I must admit that I can live with any amount of rain just so long as it doesn't snow again lol.
Still no sign of anything vaguely crafty again today. I am sooo tired at the moment that I have come home and had a Granny nap, how sad is that.
This is a card that I managed to finish at the weekend. Once again it uses bits from my Christmas box, and these were definitely stamped quite some years ago. 
The background has been made using the resist technique (glossy card stock, versamark ink and dye based inks) and the image on black has been stamped and embossed and then painted with Pearlex. I also used a Versamark pen to cover the image with embossing powder.
I added a tiny blue gem to the centre of the star.
I would like to enter it into the challenge over at Christmas Cards All Year Round where they are looking for a Christmas Card with a Heart on it somewhere.
Tuesday Throwdown wants Winter Blues on your card.
