I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

.... in June. Well, not really but the challenge at Stamp TV was to make a white Christmas card. Yes, I know it's June. Gina is giving us a head start on Christmas and I love the idea. Even though I started early last year I found in December that I still didn't have enough cards. So I think this is a must challenge for me.

The challenge was to make a "mostly" white Christmas card. You could have one accent color. I chose a very light purple. I just wanted enough to give the white a contrast. The card base is Gina K 80 lb. pure luxury card stock and the embossed background is also. I embossed with the ornament collection embossing folder. The sentiment is from Very Merry Christmas by Theresa Momber and I cut it out with an oval Nestability. The ribbon is from the Ribbon Boutique and I tied a triple-loop bow for an accent.
There are lots of ways to get started on Christmas. Check out Christmas Cards All Year 'Round. They get you thinking about Christmas so that you are prepared. I am entering my card into their Design Team Call. I'd love to design Christmas cards and be part of their challenges. I hope you'll check them out.

Thanks for stopping by. Blessing on this Tuesday and wishes for a wonderful Wednesday. See you soon.

Hi Donna,
This is a lovely card! So crisp and certainly does make me think of Christmas!
I wanted to pop in and say hello neighbor, I am in Bloomfield! *waving* If you ever want to get together and make cards or something let me know!
