Merry Monday Challenge #30

Honestly, I started this card on Monday, yes, Monday! And, it's now Saturday. That's how much stamping time I haven't had! You can find this week's challenge over at Always Playing with Paper - although, I warn you, it ends tomorrow.

For my card this week, I chose Midnight Muse and Whisper White. I am really a traditional red, green and gold Christmas kind of girl, but this year I have been taken by the blue, silver & white combinations. I love the clean and crisp look. The blue and white together really reminds me of a Canadian winter, crisp with the snow and cool with the winter light and clear blue skies against the snowy ground.

You probably can't tell, but I stuck on the tiniest of SU's basic pearls onto the two outer ornaments - there is 5 on the round ornament and 9 on the ornament on the right. On the middle ornament I used 3 medium sized pearls. The DSP is from the In-Colour pack, and the polka dot embossing reminds me of the snow falling.

The silver elastic thread is from SU, although retired long ago.

The stitched ribbon is also in Midnight Muse, and for the month of September, for every $50 order placed, you receive one for free. If you want to go crazy and place an order with me for $250 (have you seen the Holiday Mini? It wouldn't be that hard) - you can get a roll in every colour. All.For.Free!

Email me to place your order (or click here to order online), get your free spool(s) of in-colour ribbon, and get an early start on your holiday projects!
