I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

just like the one's I used to know.........where the treetops glistened and children listened to hear sleighbells in the snow.........Oh man! I can't get Bing (Crosby) out of my head. I've been singing or humming this tune since I started working on my Christmas Card on Saturday. Good thing it's a pretty song.......but erm.............well a couple of people in the house mentioned that perhaps singing Christmas Songs was a little premature!

Sankari has come up with a Fabulous Challenge for us this week, White Christmas.......although she said that we could use hints of colour, the them for the card is predominantly white.

I really like the way this card turned out.........I started a different one with the Christmas Town scene cuttlebug and couldn't get it quite right. After feeling like my brow was getting permanent dents from furrowing and upon tearing the silly cardfront into a gazillion pieces (gee, I hope Santa wasn't watching..........don't temper tantrums put you on the naughty list? ) I cuttlebugged these cute Christmas Ornaments.

They looked a little plain, so I yummied them up with some K&Co and SU half pearls. I used some "Elizabeth" Fibre........yes "Elizabeth".....isn't that Regal!, to ground my sentiment, which is layered onto a punched Scallop Oval (Stampin Up!) of Glorious Gold Metallic Paper.

Hope you'll play along with us this week and check the CSAYL site to see the pretty samples. You can get such an elegant look with white cards!

Happy Stamping!
