Silvery Lavender Christmas {Crazy Hazelnut's, Jingle Belles}

Well, I created this sweet card, using a not-so-familiar Lavender to play along with this week's challenge on Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club - and when I looked back - AFTER I made the card, I found that the challenge called for lavender, lace AND a sketch!!!  Oh well! :)  So, we'll see if I can muster up the time and lavender supplies to create another tomorrow!

Here's my card ...

I created this card with the sketch for this week's challenge at Jingle Belles Christmas challenge blog ...

And I'm also submitting this for the Crazy Hazelnut's silver challenge this week.

It really was fun to create.  I pulled out little bits of lavender and silver stuff and played with it all until I got the look I wanted.  Then of course, I had to spritz the base of the card with Glimmer Mist.  Although not always as visible in photos, it really provides a beautiful, subtle *glimmer*!  I love it!

Well, thanks for stopping by! :)
