Signs of Christmas

The signs of Christmas is certainly upon us. The first sign happens just after Thanksgiving when you start to see lights around homes and stores and Christmas trees can be seen in windows. Another sign is the temperature drops and in some places there is snow and of course the commercials change and everything is about Christmas. 

It is a fun time of year although it can be overwhelming and at times stressful. I love the snow but only for a day...just long enough to get a gorgeous know before it turns to that brown ugly slush (lol)

This card represents the beauty and inviting look you see with the fresh fallen snow covering the earth like a warm white blanket.  

To create this card I used white as my base and blue card-stock that I embossed to add texture to the card.  The detailed die piece is from Amazing Paper Grace collection called Adoria Square Shadowbox frame and then I used Spellbinders Square Nestabilities to create the frame around the photo.

I added Wild Orchid flowers, flat back pearls, a couple of stickpins and metal snowflakes as my embellishments.  I then added Star Dust stickles to everything to add a sparkling shimmer especially on the snow and the house.  To bad it doesn't show up in the photo.

Lastly I decorated the inside to match the card front and then the greeting from Spellbinders to send holiday wishes to the recipient of this card.
