I am afraid todays card has not photographed very well at all,
The card is in fact Coconut White and Silver, I started the card by embossing white card with the Holly Swirls embossing folder from CE, I matted it onto some silver mirror card and placed it on an 8 x 8 card base.
I cut a silver mat from California Collection Frames (B) and then the corresponding die from set (A). I then die cut several Holly Sprays in both white and silver and then Spellbinders Poinsettia Die in both white and silver, layered them up with silver at the bottom, then two further layers of white, topped with a crystal
The sentiment was a Justrite Christmas Stamp which I stamped with Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Silver detail Embossing powder,
I so wish you could see the card in real life, like Mrs B and Pat did, I really wasn't sure about it at first as it was quite blingy for me as I don't really use Silver mirror card, but the effect was supposed to be a cold frosty morning!
This layout would work in any number of colour combinations, feel free to use as inspiration.
Tomorrow's card is also blingy but in a more glittery way!
I would love to hear your comments today, they have kept me going all week. I think I maybe starting with whatever the girls have had this week as I feel so Hot/cold/achy today, poor Lucy has had the whole week off school almost and is still suffering, its so worrying when they are at such a crucial stage of their education, but its parents sending their children to school ill that causes so many pupils to catch these bugs! I have a feeling there will be two of them home tomorrow as Sophie is not so good tonight! Luckily the two older ones that both have reduced immunity(because of the horrendous drugs they take for their Arthritis) have both managed to avoid catching it so far!
Have a wonderful weekend my lovely friends,
