The Card Concept Challenge #104-

Are you ready for the holidays???
Wouldn't this gorgeous arrangement 
look good in your house!

I fell in love with all of the silver and the tiny bit of green in our new inspiration board!

Here is what I created:

I heat embossed the Christmas ornaments in layers of silver, white, green and clear embossing powders onto some heavy weight white card stock. I was trying to minimize the warping that you sometimes get with heat embossing. The background turned out amazing!

I felt a sentiment was all it needed! Of course, I had to add some sequins, too!

The style of my card would be considered

Classy & Elegant:
Shiny finish
Sparkling embellishments
Rich color scheme
Sophisticated sentiments
Layered Testures
Awe & Impress

I hope I have inspired you to join us here at

Paper Sweeties's 25 Days of Christmas-Day 12

Each day of December a member of the Paper Sweeties Design Team will post a
creation with our newest 
Paper Sweetie stamps and matching Sweet Cuts, called
Merry Christmas Y'all .

I LOVE this adorable stamp set 
and matching Sweet Cuts!!!!!
It is now available in the
along with many other holiday themed products!

Here's my card!

I had so much fun making these trees. I sponged some watercolor paper with Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks. Next, I splattered the paper with some black and white paints. When everything was completely dry, I die cut the trees with the Sweet Cuts. After I die cut the trees, I took a spatula and wiped some white embossing paste on them to look like snow! I love these trees! 

I fussy cut snow banks out of white card stock. I added 2-way glue to the edges of the snow banks and then sprinkled them with Diamond Dust to make it look like sparkly snow! I just love the way this card turned out!
