Challenge #11

Over at Bah! Humbug! the challenge this week is to use metallics. I don't have much spare time this week, so my card is rather plain. (Actually, most of my cards are on the plain side. I'm trying to work on dressing them up, though.)

For this card, I have embossed silver metallic paper with Sizzix' Texture Plate, Dove Garland, from Kit #14, and edged it with blue card strips. I used Inkadinkado's clear Peace stamp on textured white cardstock and colored it with metallic pens. Everything was put on a textured white card base and blue grosgrain ribbon was added to the top of the wreath. I am also entering this into the CHNC seasonal silver challenge.

Thanks for looking!


  1. It's not plain - it's classy - love the embossing. Thanks for joining in my CHNC challenge 12 - hope to see you again soon. x

  2. Plain is not the adjective that immediately springs to mind when I look at this card Ruth. If you added anything else in the way of embellishments then you would simply be hiding all that gorgeous embossing ... so I say it's just right! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
