let it snow...

Hello!

I have a little Christmas card to chat about....


This card is actually inspired by many challenges but let me tell you about my card first....all the paper is vintage Basic Grey Figgy Pudding.  The sentiment is SRM...the silver sprig is a find from a local craft store...The ornament is one of the stickers from the set...the panel with the white embossed pattern is stamped with the Skipping Stones Design Grunge set...embossed with white Zing.  


Pssstttt.....Skipping Stones Design is having a sale....buy 3 get 1 free.....check it out HERE.

Do you see the bottle of silver paint?  It is one of many paint daubers that I've had for a couple years that I hadn't cracked open yet...until I made this card....why?



JB03 has Gina as the Guest Designer and we are to use paint...hence the paint dauber...yeah, yeah, yeah...it isn't all that visible but I made some swipes on the right side of the blue panel...

The color scheme is compliments of PDCC64:


Gorgeous color combo...LOVE it...

My card design is ala Case Study #22:

I love CASE Study

Their January Muse is:

Mercy Kerin


What a fabulous card...love the overall design....

**RAK Alert**

I'll be back tomorrow with some E.A.D Designs goodness....

    What I REALLY love, though, is your use of the Figgy papers. I HAVE THOSE PAPERS, including the ornaments that I still haven't figured out how to use. So yeah, look for Figgy papers and ornaments on the rest of my cards this year. :)
