Stampin Up PAL's Paper Arts challenge #217

I can't seem to help myself. Now that I have so many Holiday sets I just have to use them, and this sketch just seemed ready made for this stamp set.

Woo Hoo, it's finally here! Today is the day you can start ordering from the new Holiday catalog! Do you have your copy?  My customers have theirs, let me know if you'd like to have one.

Today I used Bright and Beautiful stamp set. It matches up with the star framelits and makes a very elegant Christmas card, but I don't believe it's just for Christmas.

I used Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and ink, Silver embossing powder with Versa Mark embossing ink.
You can also use the Silver Metallic Encore ink.
TIP: Remember when you use the metallic ink, it's pigment ink, meant for embossing, so if you are not embossing, give it a good long time to dry, or you can go over it with your heat gun to set it.

My sentiment is from Christmas Bliss, love that  new set, lots of very neat sentiments. Now that I think about it, I could have embossed the sentiment also, but it's pretty either way.  And I dearly love these skinny gold and silver ribbons, I hope they stick around for a good long time.   I punched a hole in both sides of my oval and ran the ribbon through.
I used my tiny start punch to add the little star out of red glimmer. 

I hope you enjoyed todays card, and if you are up for it, I do love to hear what you think.  Keeping in mind that for some reason blogger doesn't give me a method of replying to your comment other then leaving my own comment, that is what I will do.
