PPA 179 and 10 days of Christmas, Day 2

Todays card is the Challenge for Pals Paper Arts, A bit of a strange color set maybe, but these were the challenge colors, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry and Rich Razzleberry.   But those were the colors so we made do! I love it, you just never know what non traditional colors will work.

Base is Crumb Cake, then I cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry from the Top Note die and stamped and embossed the O Holy Night stamp using Whisper white ink and powder.  I used a tiny stamp from the Warmth and Wonder Holiday Hostess set and stamped all over the base in Crushed Curry.

I cut a strip from silver Glimmer paper and glued down the middle of the card, then overlaid the Top Note piece.    I used the smallest of the snowflakes in the Festive Flurry stamps and die set, one in crumb cake and one in white with Rich Razzleberry ink, cut and used Stampin Dimentionals between the two layers and to apply to card. I topped it off with 3 rhinestones, one on the snowflake and two on the card top and bottom.

I hope you enjoy.  Now check out the other cards at the PPA challenge.

See you tomorrow for another card in this series.
