Merry Monday Challenge Week #79

Hello & Happy Monday!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

It's time for another fun challenge from Lesley over at Always Playing With Paper.

I pulled out a scrap piece of paper that has snowflakes on it that I had for awhile. It also had the colors in it that I needed. I layered that on some retired Ballet Blue cardstock. Then I added a piece of Ribbon and punched out a snowflake from some Silver Glimmer Paper. In my stash I had some Ballet Blue buttons so I tied that on to my snowflake with some white baker's twine. My sentiment is from a retired All Year Cheer set. I stamped that in Ballet Blue, layered that on some Ballet Blue cardstock along with a row of silver beads. Popped up my sentiment and called it done. It probably took about 20 minutes to whip up and i'm happy with it!

Hi Wendy. So pretty! Perfect designer paper - love it topped with the die-cut and layered snowflake - fabulous design. The row of silver beads under the sentiment is so creative. Loll xx

Ballet Blue! Now there's a blast from the past! This is a lovely card, Wendy. That paper really sets off your snowflakes and the Ballet Blue background is a perfect match.

So very pretty Wendy. I love the blue you have used. A gorgeous Christmas card.

LeAnne said...

Gorgeous....I miss Ballet Blue (and Bordering Blue and Brilliant Blue and Brocade Blue--notice a theme here?)! I love the way you "underlined" the sentiment too! Very pretty card!

Love the brighter shades of blue you used Wendy and the pretty snowflake with the button and twine and the silver pearls.
