Season of Cheer …

Hello and welcome to my blog. This week’s colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is to use soft shades of grey, blue and green.  I’m loving the Season of Cheer dsp from Stampin’ Up that I got in their sale.  The paper patterns are so gorgeous – look how lovely this snowflake paper is with its different shades of blue… 


As the paper is so pretty, I decided not to cover it up and just wrapped a length of soft grey ribbon around the card, tied in a bow.  The foliage, cut from certainly celery cardstock, was tucked under the bow and a few adhesive pearls sprinkled around. The sentiment is from the Lots of Joy stamp set by Stampin Up, cut out with an oval framelit and popped up on dimensionals.

I hope you like my card for this week. The Design Team has created some lovely cards to inspire you, so do pop over to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge blog to take a look.  And if you’d like to join the Design Team, now’s your chance – hop on over to the blog for details.

Thanks for dropping by today
