Card Challenge, Jingle Belles 21 & Pals Paper Arts 94

Christmas in May! I really needed to do a more toned down card this time, so I went to Pals Paper Arts for a sketch and found a Christmas challenge while visiting Three Trees. The Christmas site is Jingle Belles. I just loved their color suggestion! Cute site too!

Card Body - Cream Granite Cardstock, Fox River
Embossed Background - Cream Granite Bond, Fox River / Cuttlebug embossed
Ribbon - Lilac, Joanns Fabric's
Snowflakes & Rhinestones - Greenbacks Dollar Store
Ink - Lilac, Oriental Trading (house brand)
Pearl Sprigs - Oriental Trading

The snowflakes are inked and hot gun dried. They were also sprayed with adhesive and covered with Martha Stewart Clear/Fine Glitter.

Thanks for the visit..."Peace and Chicken"
