Is it already that time of the year?

Well, no, it really is a bit early to make my Christmas cards, I think. But as this week´s Grungy Monday challenge is Tim Holtz´ Perfect Distress technique I thought that a little shimmer would be perfect for my first Christmas card ... Other than usual I haven´t used Tim´s stamps here but have chosen Crafty Individuals´ lovely Rudolph, a text from Magnolia, and a snowflake border from Flamingo Art. Of course the scan above doesn´t show the shimmer, so I´ve made a few additional photos for you.
I´ve stamped with Distress Inks in Weathered Wood and Stormy Sky and added Perfect Pearls in Blue Patina and Pewter.
