Blue and Silver Embossed Tree

Halooo! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, I certainly did. I was able to spend it with people very dear to my heart and soak up a little sunshine. I had intentions of scheduling posts while I was gone, but it just didn't happen. I have a few more Christmas cards to share and plans for a few other creations. This one was created from a card kit. I like making Christmas cards without red or green. Blue and white are so crisp!

Color Inspiration
Cardvaarks Challenge ~ Monochromatic
Stamping Vacation Monochromatic Challenge: Blues

The Corrosive Challenge #96 ~ Bling it On
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #98 ~ Pearls I hope my silver pearls qualify.
