Morning Everyone

I hope you are having a good week.  I am back today with a totally different card from my last post.  It is time for another challenge at As You Like It and the theme this fortnight is to showcase a project using your favourite paper pad.

All my favourite pads seem to be Christmas ones! I love this Silent Night paper from First Edition as they look very wintery and cold with quite a lot of glitter on them.  In fact, it's a shame to cover some of them up.  The sheet on my second layer is a very pale blue with glittery patterns so I haven't used much in the way of embellishments.  I heat embossed the sentiment, which is from a new A5 set from LOTV, in silver and distressed the edges of the papers.  A small frosty looking flower has been added to both corners with a few silver and white stamens.

The sponsor for the challenge is

with a stamp set and a 6 x 6 paper pad for the lucky winner!

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the lovely inspiration from the rest of the team.  Hope you can play along!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Glitter n Sparkle - Embossing
Fab n Funky - Floral embellishments
Penny Black at Allsorts - Get Ready for Christmas

Have a good weekend and thank you for visiting.  I do love to read your comments, they are much appreciated.

Pretty card! Your colour scheme is so soft and subtle and the sentiment is perfect. I like how you've framed it with those pretty flowers too.
