Celebrate the Season

Well it sure is beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in Colorado.  We've had
sub-zero temps early in the morning since last Wednesday and we've barely made it
out of the single digits for highs since the 50 degree morning we had last Tuesday.
And it's snowing, for the moment! Perfect day for card making right?  So, I was able to
get one card done so far today that should work for 3 challenges.  That would be
52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, where any past 2013 challenge goes, the sketch
challenge at Mojo Monday and the color challenge at Dynamic Duos.  This is what
I ended up with.


I did some stamping, heat embossing and dry embossing.  Added a little patterned paper,
some ribbon and, of course, a little bit of bling.  Thanks for taking a look!


  1. Your card combines the three challenges beautifully! Love the embossed background, the pretty tree and the lovely colours. Fab! Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!

  2. This is absolutely beautiful! I adore the colors and I LOVE the stitching behind your image!!! Thanks for joining us at 52CCT! :) HUGS and hope you have a great week! :) Mynn xx

    PS: We've got a blog hop going on at House of Cards! We've got five prizes to give away so I hope you join in the fun! :)

  3. Beautiful card. Great way to combine 3 challenges. Hope your weather has improved. Thanks for joining us at the Dynamic Duos.

  4. Lovin' that pink bow, Judy! Your embossed tree is so clean and crisp...I think I have that stamp...yea! Love the middle background behind the main panel, too! A great submissions for all three challenges- thanks for sharing with the Dynamic Duos!

  5. I really like the softness of the pink and green (vs. traditional Christmas red and green)! The hint of shimmer is gorgeous. It's a fantastic card, and I'm so glad you shared it with us at 52{C}CT! :)

  6. Beautiful Christmas tree! It would put anyone in the Christmas spirit! Thanks for playing with us this week at Dynamic Duos.

  7. Wow you sure combined those challenges in the most lovely of ways! I love Christmas cards with pink on them - they are my favorite ones ;o) Thanks for joining us this week at 52CCT. Good luck on the DT call. Your cards are always so lovely.
