Here is a Christmas card that I made for a special person who is fighting breast cancer! I started with Stampin Up white cardstock with layers of Pretty in Pink, then added Silver Christmas Foil from AC Specialty paper. The shiney silver accents are by recollections. The decorative flourishes are by Sizzix and I covered then with Silver embossing tinsel by Ranger. The Angel stamp is by PSX (found the stamp at a thrift store) I embossed the Angel with the silver tinsel I LOVE the tinsel shiney look!! I posted this card to: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/ The Midnight Madness sketch challenge #84. And the Wild Orchid Challenge #13 http://wildorchidchallenge.blogspot.com / I hope you enjoy this card. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All!!

This was a quick and easy card to make for the House Mouse Challenge this week. http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.com/2010/12/oh-charming-christmas-tree.html The challenge was to to use a Christmas tree on your card. I just love this little mouse as the glittery star for the top of the tree. I used Martha Stewart glitter on the star and the Christmas tree branches. The base cardstock is Stampin Up, then The Paper Studio. The Glitter paper is from DCWV Amber AutumnFall Collection. I used a Spellbinder to cut to circle. The green Christmas trees are from Spare Parts, and the gold ribbon is generic from Michael's.
