a completely different Christmas card!


This card is so different from my last card post! I usually make brightly colored cards but this one is pastel. I created this card for 3 challenges.

Basic Grey Challenge #10-Colour Combo- Cream, Blue and Pink
Stamptacular Sunday #37-Christmas with a Twist
Allsorts Challenge #31 -Pearls and Swirls

The Basic Grey paper that I used is Porcelain. The blue paper is Creative Memories. The stamps are StampinUp. I modified a flower swirl in my stash by picking off the flowers and adding the snowflakes and pearls. I added Dazzling Diamonds for sparkle. Thanks for stopping by!
