Cheer PPA 182

December 8, 2013

It is going to be a very busy Sunday.  We have two parties to attend today, so I am rushing to do a few "Christmasy" things at home.  I LOL at myself thinking I make all these cards, now when am I going to sit down to address them?  That definitely needs to be on the to-do list this week.  Things seem much more rushed with one less week to prepare for Christmas!

The Pals Paper Arts chose Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla and Smoky Slate for their color challenge this week.  I love the combination, but struggled for hours to make a card that I was happy with.    Elegant Eggplant calls for "elegance" to me.  I never use the Lacy Brocade embossing folder, so it gave me a chance to pull it out and I also used my new pack of Core'dinations Neutral Paper.  I absolutely love the way it can be sanded to create a totally different effect on a card.  ENJOY!!!!
