25 days of Christmas: Day 18

Hi Everyone!

Today's card is one that I really like; but I can't exactly explain why I like it so much. It's definitely not a traditional Christmas card; but I was really pleased with how elegant it turned out. I thought the silver embossing on the smoky shadow was a big success and I will definitely remember to do again. For her Merry Christmas card, Kristina very generously offered an SVG file for 99cents. I downloaded the file; but wasn't able to use it because I just couldn't get it to cut right with my Cricut. So, I made a different one instead and it was still a bit difficult; but I finally got it to work. Yay me!!! I tied some retired Pomegranate ribbon from S.U.around the center. I was going to use red ribbon again, like I did yesterday; but I decide that I really rather liked the purplish hue with the dark grey instead. I wanted a little more sparkle to the card, so I finished it off by adding a little row of silver stickle dots along the top.
So, there it is. Simple, and easy. Please be sure to visit Kristina's original post for the card to see  Thanks for visiting again with me today; and I'll see y'all tomorrow!
