Card for Merry Monday Sketch 28

I decided to take a little time today to participate in the Merry Monday Sketch Challenge  - and went  Clean And Simple.

I know exactly the friend I will be sending this card to - she will love the simple elegance of the pearlized and embossed card stock. Below is the sketch. It is a simple sketch, but oh - the variations you could do with it!

The embossing folder and label die are both from Stampin' Up. I used a 6.5 x 5" white card base, and as mentioned - the raised panel is pearlized. Just beautiful stuff and it embosses like a dream. The words are by Hero Arts and I used Smoky Shadow ink from Papertrey Ink.  There is a tiny self adhesive gem sticker (flat) on the little punched snowflake which doesn't show up in the photos. But it really catches the light and gives the card just a little extra 'somethin' somethin'. And keeps the card completely Mail Friendly.

Exciting news, my snowman cards HERE were chosen by LeAnne as her Top Pick last week. Woo Hoo!!  (Thanks LeAnne!)

 OK - back to the chores here today. I want to get them done and out of the way so I can get back to cataloging my stamps and then back to making things!

Thanks for stopping by today.
