I really enjoyed this challenge only because I got to use a set I've been meaning to use since I got it. I'm really behind with the challenges and love doing them and now that I've started again you'll probably see more from me than the norm. With Xmas coming soon...(yeah I'm preparing for Xmas already) I'll have a lot of Xmas cards and goodies in the near future. This card looks so pretty in person I really don't think the picture I took does it justice...I tried to manipulate the pic enough to show off the details but this was as good as I was going to get with it. The edges were distressed and the snowbanks were dry embossed and glittered with stickles. I only use glass is my personal preference because the acrylic can look very plastic like on some designs, colors, layouts and so on. The glass rhinestones give off the same look as actual crystal gems which I happen to adore and you will see in many of my cards.. Sometime I do use Swarovski crystals when I make personal cards for friends and special occasions. I also used my favorite colors for this card :) River Rock, Black, and Bashful blue.

Paper: Whisper White, River Rock, Basic Black and Speckled CS unknown.

Challenge~LSC191~Christmas Wreath

This challenge was today's LSC191 and it felt like it took me forever to do. The design was simple enough to do but creating the wreath itself seemed to take the longest. And I was suppose to use pink in this challenge and I totally forgot! I actually remembered when I uploaded to the thread on SCS...oooooppps. I asked for bunch of people on SCS.

Now I had a few questions about the gold embellies. I got these at Michael's actually. They are just like the self adhesive pearls only in gold. It comes in a package with three different sizes and 144 pieces. Also come in pearl and silver.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Little Paper Shop
Paper: DP, Brown textured CS, Bazzill Monochromatics.
Embellishment: MS leaf punch, Gold self adhesive pearls, Shimmer Ribbon, "Stampin' UP" punches and Dimensionals
