CTD469 and SSC166 Blue Pines


Happy Monday, peeps!  Winding up for the Thanksgiving holiday, we have half-days at school this week, so my posting/stamping time might be a little limited!  I squeaked in a card before I fell into bed last night, using the Color Throwdown palette and the Sunday Stamps sketch:


I was intrigued by those blue and silver pinecones, so I pulled out Christmas Pines and went to work:


The pine branches were stamped with Silver Encore ink; the pine cones were stamped with Marina Mist and Pacific Point ink, then cut out with the Pretty Pines Thinlets:


I added a little sentiment from Stamploration's O Christmas Tree!  The squares are also backed by some silver glimmer paper and embellished with some rhinestone!  Love this color combination!

Cassidy enjoyed giving Grampy his birthday gift and explaining her card to him!



Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Oh wow! Those blues are gorgeous! The silver embossing behind is fabulous because of the way it peeps out from behind the pinecone panels.
