Christmas Card Club - "Let's go Monochrome"

Good morning all.


It's time for our next challenge over at the Christmas Card Club, it was Clare's turn to choose the theme this time and she's asked us to "Let's go Monochrome".  Here is my card:


Vellum paper, gems and cords came from my stash. The sentiment, tree and ornament die cuts were part of an Angel Envelope I was given.


You'll find the rest of the girls listed on my sidebar if you'd like to pop over and see their creations.

Challenges entered:
Bloggers - to die for
CRAFT - Christmas
Seemacrafts - monochromatic
CHNC - layer it up

  12. This is really pretty Carol - love your choice for the monochrome theme. Brilliant idea. I rarely use vellum myself but you have reminded me how lovely it can look. Must find out where I've hidden mine!!!

    Hugs to you and hope you have a lovely time.
