Pals Paper Arts #182--Very Elegant Slate

A lot of people wonder if they've been Naughty or Nice this year, but everyone on MY list has been NICE!! No worries! I have a lot of family and friends that I am so thankful for!! They will be receiving some NICE cards, including the one above made for this week's Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge!

I couldn't help but begin this card using the retired Snowburst Embossing Folder. It just screams Christmas! I made it sparkle by using a sponge dauber to apply some Champagne Mist.

Also, the new Very Merry Tags is becoming a fast favorite stamp set of mine. So many punches match the cute stamps! Here I used the XL Decorative Label punch to punch out the Naughty/Nice image. I "checked" the 'nice' box by putting in a beautiful Basic Pearl. The knot to the left is Smoky Slate stitched grosgrain ribbon. The Elegant Eggplant stripes on the bottom of the card came from the Stripes Embossing Folder.

I pick "naughty!" However, your card is more than "nice." It's darling!

Yes, that embossing folder does say Christmas and even more with the shimmer! I love that tag too.
