Joy!!

I am in the "throes" of the Christmas Spirit!! Tree's up, lights on, Xmas presents here or "in the works"--finally!! This card is for the CASE study challenge this week {A White on White Creation- Amy Sheffer} and the Play Date Cafe Challenge {light blue, royal blue, lime green, red}.



















Thinking to myself....I have been totally intimidated by the "white on white" AND the Play Date Cafe Colors. This was definitely a challenge for me. Ornaments are from Verve's Bright Spirits stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on a Spellbinders Labels 17 and color with copics. Added some "gems" for a little bling and popped on top of the larger labels 17. Background is a Quikutz folder... I believe "Diamonds and Dots". Added some red SU grograin ribbon.


Hope you are enjoying the Holidays... if you are like me--you're still running around and thinking {wedding slowed me down a little} and if you are "on the ball"- you're relaxing, stampin', and enjoying!!

TFL!! Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment if you do, love to hear from you!!

This is absolutely gorgeous, Vickie! LOVE the way everything pops on that bright white background and the way you've so simply tied in both texture and dimension! Just amazing! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe!

Love the white on white (one of my favorite types to make) and you did just fine with it. Love the embossed BG and the pops of colour in the ornmaents. You rocked it.
