Joyeux Noel not only am I on the
'Christmas card designing' track, but
apparently I am loving all the bling that
can be used to really take it to another level!

When I saw the finale challenge for EBTKS,
I knew I had to put my newest acquisition to use.


I love the new 'Snowflake Impressabilities' from
Spellbinders.  I used it with Coordinations cardstock, so when
I sanded it, I got this great teal-y green affect.

Kind of reminds me of a velvet embossed sofa!

 I then took my terrific Prima Poinsettias and sprayed
them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in
Bazzill Navajo, which I believe was a limited edition color.
The beautiful top card is from Fancy Pants Design.
I embellished with teardrop rhinestones and a
gigantic pearl center.  The black diamond
rhinestone flourish is from Prima as well.
The simple sentiment is from The Paper Company.

I am also offering this card over at 

Simon Says Stamp & Show ~ Holiday Greeting
There She Goes Challenge ~ Bring on the Bling

Well...I am off to make a few more things.
I am feeling a bit 'crafty' tonight.
