Happy Tuesday!  I am hosting the SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC349) this week. This week's trio of  colors are Lucky Limeade, Baja Breeze, and Calypso Coral.   Check out the link to find out how to play along and what this week's dessert option is!   I am using the sketch from Viva La Verve's November Week 1.  Amy is the host!  Great sketch, Amy!  I am also playing along with Verve's Get Your Diva On!  This month is Celebrate the Season!  Check out the links to find out how to win some Verve!
For my card I am using Verve's Ornamental Christmas set.  The newly released Bright Spirits, and Glad Tiding stamp sets.  I used the new Cut Above Snowflake Tidings dies.  Love these!  I stamped the ornament with versamark directly to the panels and embossed in gold.  I die cut a center circle using Spellbinder's circles.  I then stamped the sentiment from Bright Spirits and gold embossed as well.  I stamped two of the snowflakes from Glad Tidings in Ranger stormy sky and PTI berry sorbet.  I die cut and added glitter.  Finished with a few gold pearls, some stitching, ink distressing, and a double looped gold memory thread bow. I love the not so tradional colors on this for Christmas!  Totally fun, huh?

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
