Happy Christmas

As promised to my British readers who prefer their Christmases happy rather than merry, here's my Happy Christmas card.




The colors are SU's Baja Breeze and Marina Mist. The colorless bling was colored with a Bic marker to get the right shade...love that trick! It works with Sharpies, too, and probably Copics, but I've never tried them myself. Unfortunately, the rhinestone looks darker in the photo than it is in real life. It's actually a match for Marina Mist and so gives a more subtle shine (and a much less blob-like appearance) to the card than the photo indicates.

The sentiment is from A Wreath for All Seasons, and the snowflake is from Winterberry, both of which are sets from Papertrey.

A Thank You
I also want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to reader Phyllis S., who kindly sent me her extra Summer Silhouettes set from StampinUp. I can't wait to play with it this weekend and share some cards next week.
