It's That Time of Year! PPA184



I did a lot of internet shopping this year and the packages are arriving daily.  In the middle of the LLBean and Amazon shipments was an early Christmas gift to myself.......my Stampin' Up! order containing some products from the new Occasions catalog.  I love the silver vellum paper used here - so classy!  The bold silver stripes provide a convenient place to hide the glue......always a problem when using vellum! And those bold silver stripes were a great time saver in creating my card this week for PPA - the stripes were already built in!  I will be posting some sneak peeks of other products soon but right now I plan to kick back and enjoy the season - hope you do the same!

I wondered what to do with that stripey vellum. It's so elegant on your card. The little green holly leaves are just the right pop of color!

This made me squeal out loud, Linda! I'm so pinning! It is striking and elegant. That vellum looks 3D and that silver button, with that sediment = perfection!!

I wish you the happiest of holidays!! Holly hugs, Darnell

I think of 'Silver Bells' when I see this elegant card, Linda. So Christmasy.
