52 CCT Theme Challenge


At 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week we have a theme challenge of sequins and pearls. I have gone for a rather minimalist take with a Marianne snowflake die-cut made from Stampin' Up Confetti Celebration dsp. I have combined it with Basic Grey and Bermuda Bay cardstock and a few silvery sequins. There are lots of pearls there, but you do have to look rather closely!!

  


I hope very much to see you over at 52CCT. The design team have created some fabulous cards to inspire you. Happy Crafting!

  1. I love the simple elegance of this April. I didn't spot the pearls at first, but I'm sure they look beautiful in real life. Hugs, Gill xx

    1. Thanks Gill! Yes, much better in real life! For some reason, this looks as though it's been taken underwater :-) Xx
