Christmas Card Challenge Week #40

Wow, Sunday already. 

Another week has gone by, so quickly, that I can't find where it went. lol  As you read this, I'll be hanging out with two of my most favorite people, my sister and brother in law.  I have Monday off so they came up from Austin to spend the extended weekend with me.  We've done nothing but be bums, and eat shaved ice.  Talk about happy campers! lol

I have another Christmas card to share with you.  This weeks challenge is a color combo of chocolate, cream and cranberry.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.


I really like how this turned out.  The deep, rich colors, are fabulous together.  I also love the embossing on the patterned paper.  The text paper adds just the right touch to finish off my card.  I've added the following challenges into my card.

Last But Not Least Challenge #8 - Embossing
Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge #71 - Bling
Twisted Sketches #75 - Sketch

I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend, and enjoy the extra day off, if you were fortunate enough to have it.  I'll be back soon with another card. :)

Hugs!

Steph this is amazing. I am intriqued with how your snowflake embellishments match your embossing. This is simply superb. Thank you so much for playing along with Speedy's the Cat Friend's Challenge. It is a pleasure to visit and see what you made for us!
