Merry Monday # 50

The challenge at Merry Monday this week was to create an elegant christmas card.

Elegant to me means velvet, lace, pearls and damask pattern paper so that's what I used on my card. I  hope achieved the elegant look.

PP: Fancy Pants
Cardstock: SU, Bazzill
Pearls: Recollection
Ribbon: Unk
Ink: Tim Holtz, Versafine
Stamp: Wplus9
Even the font on my sentiment stamps is elegant!

Puppy Love

My daughter and son-in-law now have an adorable little puppy. Her name is Gabby. She sure kept us all entertained this Christmas.

The My Minds Eye Lost and Found 3 (Ruby) collection that I received from Scrapbook Memories and More was perfect to make a page using a photo of Amy and Gabby.

Products other than the kit from SSM are:
Cardstock: A.C.
Mist: Maya Road
Stickers: Glitz, A.C.
Cameo, paper doilies
I had fun misting on this page and the heart background you see was cut out with my Cameo. These MME papers are gorgeous!!!
To see my tutorial to create this page check out the SSM blog right here.
Oh I also meant to tell you that I used the January My Minds Eye sketch to create my page.
My Minds Eye and Gossamer Blue are looking for someone to guest design for them so I will be submitting this layout. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!
