Challenge Christmas Card

Let me start by apologizing for the poor photograph. Darn camera on the cell phone just doesn't take the greatest photos and my lighting at home is just terrible!

I received a package with a fabulous Riley bookmark, some very cute images and a fantastic Christmassy paperpack from my friend Mary over at SCS! Mary's posted a challenge and that is to create a card with the paperpack that she sent over and here's mine!

I couldn't wait, i got so excited to use this paper because its absolutely GORGEOUS! Forget the fact that I'm in love with all things Christmas, this rich colorful pack wont last in my craftroom! I'm dedicated to making cards with the whole thing!

The solid cardstock is all SU! I stamped the green with the flourish from Baroque Motifs (which by the way i'm LOVING). I had this set for a long time and never knew what to do with it. I recently broke it out to do some backgrounds on my calendar, and have been inking it up ever since! Its stamped with Versamark. I added a little gold ribbon, and layers of these rich beautiful colors!

The image and sentiment are both from Elzybells. I have embellished with yellow stickles for the hat & scarf, and Crystal effects for the ice and snow.
