12 Days of Holiday Projects ~ Day 8

I'm posting this one a tiny bit early, so I can link back to my friend Mary Jo's site. She has done 100 weeks of sketch challenges on her blog and I wanted to make a card with her sketch this week. Mary Jo has the cutest sketches every Monday if you want to check them out.

This is also for a non traditional Christmas colors card challenge from the Late night stampers yahoo group. I had a lot of fun with this one. I embossed the "Christ is born" in silver embossing powder. I used almost amethyst, basic grey, silver, and whisper white paper. For the main element, I used some satin ribbon to make a bow. I didn't want to take away from the clean and simple design. I love that it looks like a present, and a cross...

This card will go out to a dear friend who has been struggling with some family illness. I know this will brighten her day.

Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton
