White Christmas

I hope you are having a good Monday! It has been a bit of a crazy day here - rather busy and even the weather doesn't seem to know what its doing next  with sun - cloud - rain - sun….okay, a typical Spring day here in Melbourne! The card I have to share with you today is for a sketch challenge at  Pals Paper Arts.
This is the first time I have entered any of their Challenges but when I saw this Sketch, a card idea started to form so I knew I had to try it. I apologise for the poor lighting in the photos  - the sun has gone for the day!

The base of the card is Whisper White Card stock and the next layer is some Designer Series Paper from the Winter Frost Specialty pack backed with Pool party card stock. the top layer is Smoky Slate embossed with the Print Poetry EF and added with dimensionals.

The Poinsettia is Vellum card stock embossed with White embossing Powder and topped with Basic Pearls. The Merry greeting is part of a stamp from the now retired Many Merry Messages stamp set and is topped with some pool party satin ribbon and another Basic pearl. 

Card stock: Whisper White, Pool Party, Smoky Slate, Vellum Card stock
Designer Series Paper: Winter Frost Specialty
Inks: Versamark, Pool Party
Stamps: Joyful Christmas, Many Merry messages (retired)
Accessories: Big Shot, Print Poetry EF, White EP,  Corner Rounder punch, Basic Pearls, Ribbon (retired) dimensionals,

Happy stamping until next time,
