Monochromatic Christmas

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Today's card is one of five identical ones which have been sitting, unphotographed, on my desk for a couple months.  And yep, they are the only Christmas cards I've created so far.  Eeek!

That said, they are appropriate for a job application, I hope!  The amazingly talented Mynn of On A Stampage and other sites, has started a new challenge blog, Rainbow Card Challenge and is currently holding a Design Team Call...

As per the DT Call request, my style is mostly CAS.  I love white space, and you could say this card is CAS, but with the white and color flipped?  I would love to join the new team, not least because it would be my third such team led by Mynn.  She's a precious friend and I love her creativity. 

Hopefully that doesn't sound too suck up, and if it does, I'll try to distract you with the card recipe...

Card: SU whisper white base and snippets, and Tonic's Denim Ripple specialty card
Ink: VersaMark (although it might not be obvious the dies are all cut from glitter embossing powered card)
Tools and embellishments: SU's Star of Light thinlits, and X-Cut Merry & Bright dies, WOW clear sparkle embossing powder, and unbranded rhinestones

#214 AG at 613 Avenue Create
#427 Christmas at 4 Crafty Chicks

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.  In the meantime, please wish me luck?
