PP521 Peace Wreath

Happy Sunday, peeps, and time for our last Paper Players challenge of 2020!  Claire is our hostess and we are closing out the year with a bang!  Check out these colors:

Such an elegant combination!  For a last-minute Christmas card, this is what I came up with:

I used some of the Feels Like Frost DSP on the silver side (which is so hard to photograph), and a silver-embossed wreath, embellished with some silver and black pearls and a little gingham ribbon:

I added a diecut sentiment on a black stitched banner, and a lovely sentiment for the inside:

This uses the sketch from Fab Friday:

And here's true confession time; I actually made a different card for this challenge LAST WEEK because I looked at the wrong date on the calendar!  So here's my original card, using the FMS sketch, which obviously is over, but I thought I would share it anyway:

Same line of DSP, different pattern, different sentiment:

So I hope you'll be able to squeeze in some time to play along this week...I know it's getting down to the wire and time is tight, but if you do have some, we'd love to see what you come up with! Check out what the other team created at the Paper Players while you're there!  Thanks for popping in today -- enjoy it and be blessed!

Both lovely cards LeAnne and I was struck by how we both used the same sketch this week yet our cards looked so different. Loce it when that happens!

Two gorgeous cards, LeAnne! Love them both. But - that DSP in the small square on your second card is...super fun! :)
