I hope you had a Merry Christmas! I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas day with family and friends. Of course I missed my angel daughter but I know she was with us... just in a different way. Spending time with family and friends is such a comfort when missing a loved one who has passed away. I'm so thankful to have a large loving family both blood related and through my church.
Now onto my card for this week's MTME Pretty Patterns challenge. I love the Mrs. Candy Claus pattern paper so I had to make one more Christmas card for you using this luscious paper.
I used Tim Holtz carved Ornaments die cut from Sizzix to cut out the ornament. The paper is glittered and from Sugar and Plums pattern paper by Recollections (at Michaels).
I hope you can see the glitter a little better in the photo below.
I used some shiny white paper from my stash for the snowflake on the ornament.
I typed the words "Merry Christmas" onto cardstock and then trimmed it for the tag. I carefully bent the strip with my fingers to give it the 3-D effect.
The sheer white ribbon also has glitter on it. Here's a close-up of it.
I hope you stop by the MTME Pretty Patterns blog and see what the rest of the design team have in store for you.
Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate each and every visit and comment. I hope you have a fabulous New Year!
