Christmas Magic - Stampin' Up! Whimsical Tree - Paper Players 567

   We're hitting the ground running today!  The Paper Players are back with a fantastic new challenge.  Joanne has us working with fun neutral colors!  Grey, Black, White & Silver.  I can't wait to see what you all do with this color palette!

  Since Christmas cards are my most needed card right now I didn't even contemplate another kind of card and got right to work with the Whimsical Trees bundle and pulled out all of my fun sparkly, shiny papers and embossing powders.


  This is a card that is definitely nicer in person!  There just isn't any way to capture the sparkle and shine with a least not with my poor photography skills!

  I had a lot of fun mixing and matching the different trees with different paper and embossing powders to create this snowy scene.

  You'll find a lot more inspiration with these colors on the Paper Players Design Team blogs.  Check them out, give them some love and then join in with your own creation!
