No Red, She Said

We have here again some of my favorite Christmas paper-My Mind's Eye Signature Christmas Holiday Glitter Book. I got it last year and have already made quite a few cards with it. You might still be able to get it. I happened to see one at the Hobby Lobby closest to me the other day.
I clear embossed the street lamp with Soft Suede ink and it just so happened that the little snowflake that was already on the paper was in just the right place. Some sponging with Baja Breeze and my trusty Sharpie silver paint pen and silver ribbon finished this off beautifully.

2 Challenges:
Supplies: Ivory Card Blank 5 1/2" X 6" Halcraft, Papers: My Mind's Eye, The Paper Co., Stamp: Inkadinkado-Holiday Words, Ink: Stampin Up-Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, VersaMark, Stampin Up clear embossing powder, Sharpie Poster Paint Pen-silver, Spellbinders Nestabilities-Classic Scallop Circle Lg., Stampin Up- 1 3/4" circle punch, Michael Richard's-silver dot stickers, TomBow Multi-Purpose glue, ribbon-Offray.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥

Those are some of my favorite papers too ... such beautiful muted hues ... and a big woot woot for that serendipitous moment when the stamped design coordinates with the design in the paper ... love that double bow too ... thanks for joining our jingle belles journey.

This is an elegant card, very gentle with the muted colors.
