Mono Christmas


We had a lovely day yesterday. I bought a retro 60's style coat which was half price, we had lunch at Bella Italia, 2 for £10 and finished the Christmas shopping. I did sneak in some crafting when I got home too and finished off with a brilliant episode of The Apprentice. So onto my card today. A new challenge today at Crafty Ribbons and our theme is Mono Christmas. I really love the new black and white range of ribbons so I decided to go for a white on white card mounted on black card. I used some embossed snowflake card I bought at the NEC with various dies. The snowflakes are Joy, birch trees and cardinals IO and the deer are MB.

The glitter really shows up on this lovely card Marianne, it's so difficult to photo sometimes.
The ribbon is beautiful too.

Wow! Not only is your card gorgeous, but your day sounded so lovely, too! Can I trade you for a day like that some time? :) I'm so glad that you inspired us with your simple color palette because it just goes to show that white and black can still pack a punch! You've given this card such life and energy with the different layers and textures and the glitter makes it so elegant. I especially like the embossed background and how the deer stand out so beautifully against it. Wonderful job and thanks again for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
