Waltzing Simon Says Christmas Without Red or Green

The shiny nature of the silver cardstock (including the Mirri) plus the silver pearlescence of the navy made this very difficult to photograph.

Paula - this is stunning!!! I love that star and the way you've mixed the two card types. It's fantastic!

very striking design Paula and I bit it shimmers under the lights. I was playing with inks this morning after seeing a technique on line - unfortunately all I got to show for it was inky fingers!
enjoy the weekend and stay warm and snug.

Hi Paula, I've written half an email so far, hope to finish it today or tomorrow.
Fabulous card, fabulous images, I love that star, very dramatic, especially the way you've split the papers.

Hi Paula ~
This is just stunning looking at the photo, so I can only just how beautiful this must be in real life. Your embossing is perfection!!
