Merry Monday 50

DSCF2977

Happy Monday, peeps!  Hope you had a good weekend!  Today’s Merry Monday challenge is to make an elegant Christmas card:

I got this beautiful image recently from my friend Martha, and I thought it would be perfect for this challenge!  Here we go:

MM50-LeAnne-2

It was stamped in Midnight Muse; mounted on a piece of silver glimmer paper, then mounted on a Midnight Muse card base.  This is the easiest card I’ve ever made…and look how gorgeous it is with its beautiful Dazzling Diamonds glitter (hard to see, so you’ll have to take my word for it!):

Just to show that “elegant” doesn’t have to be complicated!  I hope you’ll find some time to play along with us this week with your elegant creation!  It’s great to have your Christmas cards started!!!!  Be sure to stop over at the Always Playing with Paper blog to see the other designers’ creations as well!

Wrapping up the babies!

Cassidy is taking such good care of her baby. That is cute basket she has.
This card is stunning. I love the silver and blue together and the dazzling diamonds (yes I can see them a bit) must be so much better IRL.

Cute card and image. Love the plaid paper. I like the jumbo eyelet and ribbon embellishment - great idea.
Have a wonderful vacation.
