CAS Snippets for Christmas

Hi everyone, I've been having problems with neck and backache and not able to sit at the computer for very long so this is a quick post with a card I made using one of the new Memory Box dies and snippets of gold and white card.

I used a Die'sire petite dots embossing folder at an angle on the white card and the sentiment is from Artful Stamps. The MB die is 'Poinsettia Ribbon' with an extra set of petals to layer it up and finished with a few pearls.



and here's a closer look at the MB die
 

I've made this card for the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Rudolph Days challenge 'christmas'
Less Is More challenge 'recipe - use snippets'
CAS-ual Fridays challenge 'embossing'
Fun-Day Friday challenge 'sketch'

Thanks for taking the time to pop by today. I'm sorry I haven't been leaving any comments on your posts but I have been making quick visits around your blogs when my back allows it and hopefully all will be better soon.

  2. This is stunningly beautiful and loaded with class. I do hope your back gets better soon. It is horrible when you can't sit or stand because of back problems, I know. Try to relax and enjoy the rest of this week.

  3. Gosh, Kanda. This is very effective...love that angled design. The MB die cut in the gold to match the angled strip is lovely, and makes your design pop!

    Thanks for taking part in the July Rudolph days Challenge.
