Calm

Mid June already???!!!  Where is this year going?  Since it is the middle of the month, it's time for some mid-month inspiration from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  Here is my card:
It all started because I wanted to use a bit of this lace and the rest just went from there.  I love the elegance created by the silver and the white on white background/embellishments. I used a damask embossing folder to add a little texture and interest to the horizontal strip on the background, and added a tiny clear rhinestone to the star in the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you get a chance to work on (or get started on) your Christmas card stash and come play along with us.

Challenges:
One Stitch At A Time #264--layer it up
Christmas Card Challenge #23--religious
Sweet Stampin'--lots of layers (even my ribbon and lace are layered)
Open Minded Challenge #6--seasons/holidays
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #235--silver
