Yuletide Greetings!

Greetings!  Working on my Christmas Card Inventory with the latest Challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throw Down. The challenge this week is a recipe:  Patterned Paper, Glitter, and we most decorate the inside of our card.  In retrospect, I see a Valentine's Day influence on my card! But truly, the patterned paper by Martha Stewart is a leftover piece of Christmas card stock.  The postage stamp image by Inkadinkado was stamped with Red StazOn Ink.   I found myself breaking up the pattern a bit with the paper doily and lace trim.  Vintage seam binding and buttons, and a few ChitChat stickers complete my card.  For glitter, I used Red Ranger Stickles.  A close up below, hopefully gives you a better feel for the glitter.

I used more of the same paper inside and decided to add more Stickles as well!
I am still plugging away to create a total of seven of each week's design to meet my card goal for Christmas.  Wish me luck!  Best, Yvonne

Gorgeous card Yvonne (and your CAS one too). I really like the button arrangement here. I dont think I can face into Christmas cards yet though but I do like yours. Good luck for 7! Nicola x

HI Yvonne
Before I signed off for the night I decided to pop on over to see if you had been blogging and what a card I see before me.
Gorgeous touches and I am in admiration for the fact you are creating Christmas cards already.

Hello Yvonne,
This is a beautiful card, using the traditional Christmas palette look stunning, adding the buttons and bow adds an extra interest and you tend to linger more on card.
Smiles :-)
