Christmas for the Paper Players

Hi Everyone:  First, I would like to wish all my US stamping friends a Happy Thanksgiving and may you enjoy the holiday with your family and friends.  Even though it is not my Thanksgiving, I would like to say that I am very grateful for my cyber friends and the many comments that you leave on my Blog.

Even though this is a busy time of year with the baking, shopping, decorating, wrapping the gifts, I wanted to make a card for this week's Paper Player's challenge.  The challenge is to make a card using Night of Navy, Whisper White and Silver.  I love this colour combination because of it's clean and crispness, so just couldn't resist. 

Stamps: Bright Hopes (c – 122692 $21.95, w – 122690, $28.95 p. 32, 2011-2012 Holiday Mini)
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Silver Glimmer, Night of Navy DSP
Accessories: Versamark, Pearls, White Embossing Powder, Whisper White Organza Ribbon

For the silver, I used the Stampin' Up! Silver Glimmer paper (just love it) and hopefully Stampin' Up!will decide to bring out the Glimmer paper in more colours.  After all, there can't be too much bling or then again maybe there is.

Just a reminder to check out Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Extravaganza that is going on until November 30, 2011.
