Creative Wednesday...

Happy Creative Wednesday,

Another short scheduled post I'm afraid!  Its my turn for the Ce Design team, as I mentioned last week we had the theme Dancers or Christmas, I chose Christmas.  However Andy who shares Wednesday with me chose dancers so click HERE to see today's blog post from Creative Expressions and see what Andy has come up with that I'm sure will dance off the page!

This week I have tried to make something a little most Christmassy than last weeks pear treat!  I used the holly die from Creative Expressions and cut it in Vintage silver and gold.  I stamped the background from Justrite stamping, in perfect medium and embossed it in Cosmic Shimmer Detail Gold embossing powder.  The background is a layered affair of snowflake lattice embossed silver card and vintage gold.

Hopefully a more Christmas card or this week!
