White, Navy and Silver...

     Hi there, hope you are having a marvelous week:) It's a bit chilly outside here...mind you it is about 10 degrees Celsius above our average for this time of year; so I guess a person shouldn't complain too much.

Anyways, I thought I would play along with a challenge over at The Paper Players; White, Silver, Night of Navy.


I started off by covering my cardstock in some tinfoil (which was nice as I got to use up some cardstock that I have tons of but never use; I think I used an orange color) and then I ran it through my Big Shot with an embossing folder from SU (that I just got). I used Stampin Up's "Snow Swirled" and "Sincere Salutations" stamp sets with Night of Navy ink (as well as 2 other shades of blue for some contrast). The cardstock is also from SU as well as the punch I used for the sentiment.

I just really tried to keep the design simple and not over complicated or cluttered.


Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you soon,

Jessie
