Holiday Blog Tour - Day 3

I'm late, I'm late for an important date, no time to say hello, good-bye, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late. Sound familiar? I'm afraid it's the story of my blog life. In my real life, I'm always early. I made this card this morning and wanted to create something a little more whimsical for Christmas. Not sure that it accomplished that task, but I hope you like it anyway. I used SU's Season of Joy stamp set. The papers are SU Whisper White, Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo. I embossed the swirls on the white with SU's White Embossing Powder and the Christmas tree with SU's Silver Embossing Powder. I then highlighted the swirls and tree with SU's Dazzling Diamonds. The ribbon and crystal accents are all from SU. Click on the image for the details as they didn't photograph very well. Hope you like. Please leave comments and feedback. You "need" to visit the next person in the blog hop. Please visit Laurie - she is incredibly talented. Have a great day!
