White on White Mistletoe

Hello All,

I hope this post finds you well and ready for the coming weeks of the New Year! For today I am playing with Come and Get It Challenge and Creative with Stamps. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The monochromatic white-on-white color scheme
seems to make this card elegant and timeless.
Lots of festive sparkle and shine topped off
 with a white paper and vellum bow.
Rhinestones are sprinkled around and within the mistletoe.

Below: Detail view of the sparkly mistletoe and vellum bow. The view above/left shows the card in light and
below/right shows the card not in light, casting all sorts of beautiful shadows.

Challenges Entered:
Come and Get It Challenge: Christmas
Creative with Stamps: Challenge #9- Use a Christmas Stamp

Wrapping is the bane of my existence this time of year. Usually, I bare down on Christmas Eve and just get it done... While wrestling with the paper, it gets me a bit ornery knowing I am doing all this fussy work only to have it be ripped open in a few short hours... So, here I am once again with Christmas breathing down my neck and have yet to wrap one single gift...Tis' the season to procrastinate, I guess!! I think the movie A Christmas Story 24-hour marathon on TBS has my name written all over it, again.

So cheery tonight... Yikes! Anyway, I want to thank you for stopping by my corner of the internet. I hope to see you soon in Blogland. Until then take care and happy stamping!

All the best,

Shawna, oh my goodness, this is so beautiful! Love, love, love! How you managed to add so many layers and yet still look so very elegant, please teach me how lol!
I just wanted to pop over before I get too busy to thank you for cheering me on every month. It means more than you will ever know sweet lady.
Also as we're going to be a bit manic in January I just started a draft post at HOC so that I could put my card in there and know I don't have worry about getting online as it's done if I can't get to my blog Christmas/New Years. You are not alone hun, I've made the cards but need to add inserts, the shopping is done but presents need to be wrapped and oh yes we've got to get those cards posted lol! A manic week ahead for me too xx
