Elegant Christmas

You've already seen the CAS version of this card, if you missed it you can find it HERE, this is the elegant version.


I've used the same Indigo Blu stamp and heat embossed it with the same Gold WOW embossing powder but this time I cut it out with my new Spellbinders Regal Frame die.  I then cut the outer frame from the same set in gold card stock.  The embossed background is Sue Wilson's Swirling Holly embossing folder, this has also been layered on gold card stock, I then added a further layer of white and gold card stock.


The beautiful poinsettia and curled vines are Sue Wilson dies and I have added pearls from my stash to finish.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Boots Challenge - Gold
Deep Ocean Challenge 88 - Christmas in October
Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge 121 - Anything Goes!
Sentimental Sundays Challenge 227 - Bling It Up
Country View Crafts' October Challenge - Sparkle and Shine
Addicted to Stamps Challenge 88 - White and one other Colour
Nutcrafters Challenge #78 - Something New (Spellbinders and Sue Wilson dies)

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.
