Glitterbabe Challenge!

Hello it's Thursday and time for another Glitterbabe Challenge! This week Glitterbabe challenged her Glitterbugs to create a Christmas Card without the traditional red and green colors AND we are being sponsored by Pizzazz Aplenty!!! You have heard me talk about Pizzazz Aplenty for a while now...believe me, you HAVE to visit Judy...she has the most awesome bling at the most reasonable prices and of the utmost quality. For my card today the "bling" I used from Pizzazz Aplenty is the 8mm pink brads and the white metallic banyon leaves...gosh I so wish I had used a darker color so the leaves showed up better...they are awesome. If you want to see them a little closer, just click on the pic and you can see a close up. For the rest of the card design, I used Glitterbabe's Dove image as well as one of her Christmas sentiments. I so love the Dove just makes me think of peace. Thanks to my dear friend Glitterbabe for drawing us such awesome images to create with! The corners for each of the layers was punched with a MS punch and the medallion is the Nestability Fleur de Lis....Oh and of course I had to add some embossing...the top pink layer is embossed with the Sizzix Snowflake #3 embossing folder. Please hop on over to the challenge blog and check out the rest of the DT's art! And play along with us!!! The prize is awesome...nope not telling you...get your hiney over to the challenge blog to see what it is!!! Hope your day is an awesome one...and I just want to say how much I appreciate all the comments on my cards...thank you soooo much!

Hi Vicki, Oooohhh, what a gorgeous card! I love the layering with the punched corners. Wonderful use of the leaves to compliment your lovely soft colors, and of course, the bling on your Nestability Fleur de Lis is a great final touch to make the card sparkle!
