Black and White Christmas


Happy Thursday, everyone!  I know today is St Patrick's Day, but I have a Christmas card for you, LOL!  I wasn't sure I would be able to pull off the Merry Monday's challenge of black, white and silver, but I persevered!  I also used the Jingle Belles challenge of Spirit of Christmas Past (Joy to the World music) and the Stamp, Ink, Paper sketch:

SIP Sketch Challenge 39 800
And here's my card:


I printed out some vintage sheet music from the Graphics Fairy in grayscale to use as my background.  The sentiment, stamped in Silver Encore ink, is from Papertrey's O Holy Night, and the silver glimmer paper bell is cut using a Lil'Inker die.  I used glimmer paper for my back panel and the banners are Basic Black and Silver Foil from SU:


And I love the inside too....another sentiment from O Holy Night, and I used the little silver stars that I popped out from the bell to accent it:


Cassidy had another birthday party for AJ; I didn't have the heart to tell her these were Christmas gift bags, LOL!  He is excited about his DVD!


Two of the guests (I dare you to keep a straight face!):

 

And she "helps" him push his new cart!


Enjoy your day!
