BANNER'S FOR CHIRSTMAS

I haven't seen a lot of cards made with this wonderful set yet in blog land or Pinterest.  So I thought I'd get my thinking head on and try and do a few.  Yesterday I included it on a card for Less is More challenge blog.

Today I've turned the mistletoe upside down, which is the right way up - do you get me?

I've kept it as a simple card with just a touch of Old Olive.  The Basic Pearls really help to bring this card to l ive.  I've used an embossing folder for the dots on the white backing paper and a touch of the gold ribbon on the stems.  There is a touch of Wink of Stella on the flowers which gives a bit of sparkle.

I really like how this one came out and may even just make a whole load of these for some craft fairs I have booked.  I'm not very good at doing more than one card because I get bored so easily - does anyone else get like that?




 Connie and Mary have a colour challenge happening at the moment which asks you to use Old Olive so I'm going to add this into the challenge.  I'm not sure whether all the colours they've given us have to be included but I'm sure they'll let me know if this one isn't suitable.

 



All supplies are of course Stampin Up..

 Happy Crafting

What a great way to use that stamped image! I haven't seen much done with this set either and this is simply elegant! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

I'm a one and done kinda card girl. But I do agree that this card would be a great one to duplicate. I love all the dots. Thanks for playing along with us at Create with Connie and Mary!
