Silver & White Christmas Blessings

Happy Black Friday everyone! I hope those who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday had a wonderful time with friends & family.
I made this white on white card for the Shopping our Stash #129 challenge, which is to make a "holiday or winter" card.
I love making white poinsettias with the Spellbinders die I used here. I complimented the bloom with a Memory Box pinecone border die cut, adding silver beads in assorted sizes. The sentiment was embossed with silver, and I also added a narrow strip of silver ribbon to the top; both from SU!

Here's a black Friday special you're going to enjoy! Deedee Anderson is offering a free digi from her "Whole Latte Love" stamp set on her blog today! She has both the uncolored and pre-colored versions and you can d/l them until December 6th - when they'll be taken down. Remember....if you snooze, you lose! I just learned that the hard way this morning! lol I had my eye on an online TV that we considered getting for ourselves for Christmas, and by the time we finally decided to go ahead and order it - poof! It was sold out! LOL

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful weekend ahead!

This card is phenomenal!!!! Just stunning, Carol. I was amazed at how beautiful the pine cones look in white. Silver with the white is a class act. I'm so sorry to hear that they sold out your TV. Everything happens for a reason, maybe it will show up somewhere else even lower in price. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Enjoy the weekend.

Gorgeous card!

Can you tell me where to pinecone diecut is from? It says MB, but I'm drawing a blank as to who that is.

Thanks!

For those who have asked, I edited the post to show that MB means Memory Box, and SB means Spellbinders. Sorry for the confusion :)

Oh Carol...this card is so gorgeous. Love the white on white and the beautiful dies that you chose. I love the way that the pincone die seems almost lifted up off the bage. It is making it all look so real!
