White Christmas

Look, two posts in three consecutive days... what? HAHA! I have been determined to get my Christmas cards done! I actually made two of these, but they are exactly the same so I just took a picutre of one of them. Once again, I don't feel like my photo came out well.

The ornament is from Delightful Decorations and is embossed with silver embossing powder. The sentiment is embossed in gold. Both are popped up on dimensionals.

The paper I used is the Neutrals Paper Pack of designer paper. I thought this pattern would make a classy background for my simple card.

I didn't put anything bulky on this card so it will mail easily. I think that's my greatest challenge... I always want to put bows on everything! I had to stop myself on this one! HAHA!

This is for the following challenges:
#1 - Pal's Paper Arts
#2 - Stampin' B's to use a star on your creation
#3 - Sweet Sketch Wednesday
#4 - Delightful Challenges to use embossing

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous day!
