Silver - I can already feel the changing of the season and with the draught and high temperatures, it is a welcome relief.
The challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog is O for ONE color plus white. I went with a Christmas card for this challenge. I love white on white, but they all seem to turn out to be wedding cards and I wanted to be a little different.
My DP is actually silver vellum that I ran through the CB. I don't know who made the embossing folder that I used. I know that it is not CB; as it is blue.
The envelope looking flap is a snowflake shaped paper. I just cut off one of the points. The snowflake garland is from the Seasonal Shoppe.
This flower spray is made up of several elements: a feather, a Cheery Lynn holly die cut twice - once with cardstock and once with waxpaper, 3 silver flowers and 3 beaded stick pins. Everything is held together with slate baker's twine.
I added gemstones to complete the card.
