Holiday Greetings


The Jingle Belles challenge going on right now is to make a card for someone who doesn't necessarily celebrate Christmas. I went with a turquoise and silver color theme, and used an embossed background with a SU! sentiment. I embossed a snippet of white card stock with silver embossing powder, and used that for the sentiment mat. I added some gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty and tied some white satin/sheer ribbon into a bow for the finishing touch.

I'm also sharing this over at Pixie's Snippets Playground #196.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is fabulous!

Carol

I'd say this fits the challenge perfectly. What a lovely colour. The sentiment looks like a little parcel with the bow on top. very pretty. Barbxx

Very pretty card. That shade of blue and Silver always look so nice together. That particular ribbon is perfect for this, touch of class, card. The addition of those two blue gems is all this beauty needed.
