Paper Players Challenge #18

Good Monday Morning ~ hope you all had a wonderful weekend ~ we spent Thursday to Saturday with dear friends and then picked up Marc at the airport on Sunday afternoon! yippee ~ so nice to see him for a couple of days! 
So I mentioned a sneak peek on Friday, for today, but, I've changed my mind ~ (am I allowed to do that?) ~ I actually decided to enter another challenge that I saw as I was hopping around ~ here's a challenge from Paper Players,  Challenge #18, created in Monochromatic colors. And the Christmas card done in neutrals ~ well, black & so saffron 
~ hope this is acceptable for the challenge ~  

This was heat embossed using Gold Embossing powder and then punched using the Ornament X-Large Punch (love that punch)

Once again, this card is far more stunning in real 
~ the inside was punched with a Christmas themed border punch ~

  • Stamps:  Delightful Decorations
  • Paper: Basic Black, So Saffron
  • Ink:  Versa Mark
  • Acc:  Ornament X-Large Punch ~ SU, Embossing Folder, Metallic Rub Ons Paint, Gold String, Gold Tinsel Wrap, Border Punch (all non-SU)
In keeping with the Christmas theme, I'd like to share an up coming Stampin' Up Special with you ~ Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your day!

It's Christmas shopping time once again and Stampin' Up is offering some Christmas bundles starting Oct 19th, be sure to take a peek and get your wish list together. Let me know what I can order for you today and get a jump on your creations!
