A blue and purple color combo is one of my absolute favorites, and I thought that using it for a Christmas card would be both challenging and fun. My only "J" is in the Joyeux Noel sentiment.
I used a sketch from Sweet Sketch Weds.
Background paper from Beccy's Place.
Silver glitter paper from Recollections
Ornament shape cut from gold, iridescent, geometric CS (Spellbinders die)
Joyeux Noel cut with Die-versions die
White paper strips are embossed
Silver paint pen and white gel ink used to define the 'stitched' areas of the sketch
Flat gems added to diagonal corners

Hard to believe we're nearly half way through November. Good grief, I can barely believe we're right around the corner from all the winter holidays! It seems like only yesterday I was complaining about the miserable heat of summer and now we have wonderful, crisp evenings and the TV ads are all about snow and Christmas. (I do wish we could have the fun of Halloween and the warmth of Thanksgiving before they start running 24 hour a day ads to buy, buy, BUY!) And here I am making Christmas cards! lol But that's different since I have to mail most of my cards and I have so many to make. Besides, I don't plaster advertising all over the television waves. OK, ranting finished. :-D
Happy Crafting. NanaConnie
