House of Cards and Paper Players

House of Cards is hosting a blog hop and is having a DT call- I am glad I found out about this  - just in time.......I have played in their challenges in the past, but lately I did not get a chance.....but lately I have not gotten to do much card making anyhow. Perhaps after the Holidays are over I'll manage to have more time in my craft room. One can always hope.....

So here is the inspiration picture - very elegant and festive - it calls out for a Christmas card!


And here it is:

I took several pictures in an attempt to capture the glitter and shine of this card.

The square under the wreath is glimmer paper and the wreath is die cut with two different types of glitter paper.

I added some gems and a pearl.  I like it very much - I hope you do, too!

And as luck will have it my card also fits the Paper Players theme:

And, because I used some Snippets its going into the Snippets Playground
I am also linking this card with  the CHNC challenge extra for December - Anything Christmas and the
  regular CHNC challenge - whatever is urgent to make and aren't Christmas cards right now urgent?

Sentiment: Mama Elephant Merry Greetings, 
Dies: My Favorite Things dies

I liked it very much indeed. The glimmer & sparkle were captured in your photo so well, and your choice of 2 diff papers for your wreath really added some great shading. It showed up so well against that glimmer paper, and wow, did you ever get that inspiration photo translated into such a marvelous, sparkling card. Merry Christmas, TFS & Hugs
