Silver and Blue Christmas Card

 I will try to get a better photo of this card at some point because those mirror silver medallions look more like gold, but they are bright silver and  hard to photograph. The mirror silver was cut with Spellbinder's circle dies. Each center has a blue glittered snowflake done with a die from the retired SU! Pillow Box die set, and each snowflake has a matching silver brad in the center. The embossed panel was done with a Darice snowflake ef and the designer paper is a snippet I found in my overflowing box of scraps. I cut two narrow strips of the glittered blue paper and edged the embossed panel with them to tie everything together. The sentiment is from SU!'s Teeny Tiny Wishes which was released in 2009-2010.

I'll share with the Sketch Saturday #739

Sharing also with the Retro Rubber Challenge #220 - must use stamps older than 1 year.

I used the middle horizontal line of Die Cut or punch / Pattern Paper / Embossing.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a fabulous crafty day!

Mirri card is a nightmare to photograph Carol, but we all know it's silver, nice design with the small elements.

AMAZING!!! Such elegant and interesting design! I would have to CASEing a lot of your cards, Carol! :D But not sure about the results of mine! LOL :D
Silver or gold, those medallions look fabulous, they are a so clever focal point for the beautiful sketch! Love that scrap of paper and the embossed panel, and the touches of blue glitter are just perfect to add a festive look! Very well done!
Hope you have a good weather and a lovely day my dear friend! Big hugs and love from afar!
