Joyeux Noel Card

Hi guys! A quick share..I have exactly 1 million things to do today! I made this card for the Shabby Tea Room challenge.
I finally got my hands on a Grand Calibur die cutting machine on clearance at HSN last week. I ADORE that thing! I was using a Sizzix Big Kick to cut my Spellbinders and I was never able to get a good,deep emboss. The Grand Calibur whips through like a dream and gives me the look that is intended for these awesome dies.
Here is this week's inspiration picture:
How pretty! We were to use pinks,neutrals,gold,snowflakes and flowers. I can't believe I managed to get them all on!
card stock,sentiment stamp,flowers,pearls-Recollections
patterned paper- Anna Griffin
die cuts-Spellbinders (grand labels one, fleur de lis accents,snowflakes)
resin wreath-Melissa Frances (colored with Tarnished Brass Crackle paint,buttercup Liquid Pearls  by Ranger)

Season's Greetings Wreath Card

Hi readers! Today I'm sharing a card I created for this week's Case Study Challenge. The object of their weekly challenge is to use a chosen card as your inspiration. You can use the colors,sketch or any other element that inspires you.
Here is this week's inspiration card by Amy Sheffer:
I absolutely adore this card. Amy is very talented and she makes stunning creations! I hope I have done her justice. I borrowed heavily from the card because I think it is so beautiful AND I had a lot of the same tools used to make it. I tend to shy away from mostly white cards,so I infused a little color into it.

card stock- Georgia Pacific and Bazzil
stamps- Wreath- Papertrey Ink
              Sentiment- Studio G
die cuts- Spellbinders Dies (labels four and fancy tags 3)
seam binding- Hug Snug (custom colored with Copic Marker Verdigris)
embossing folders-ProvoCraft
bling-Kaiser Kraft

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
