A blue sparkly start to Christmas

Hello I am back to share some more photos from our Disneyland Paris trip. The Christmas decorations  were so pretty and the theme seemed to be blue. Daisy loved them.
The tree was en-nor-mouse
and the Christmas parade made everyone smile

The evening parade was just as spectacular

I decided to use blue as the colour for my card today...a Christmas card. I used 3 distress ink blues and a mask for a moon 
and I created a moonlit snowy scene with a deep blue sky
I die cut some trees and embossed them in silver
and made this card

My card was created for these challenges

 The Funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas #9
If you would like to play along with Linda's challenge you can see all the rules here. There are some great prizes for the winners too. The challenge is generously sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique Linda shares a tag each week and you just have to take something from it and make something Christmas themed. I have always chosen to make cards and it's a great way to make 12 very unique cards for Christmas.
You can also combine it with any other that is just what I did.
This is her card for week 9 here. I took the deep blue sky and the embossed trees and deer to use for some of the inspiration in my design.
