Simple Christmas...

Well, i've finally given in and created a Christmas card. Normally, I don't do Christmas cards until after Thanksgiving, but I got my Stampin Up order in and it included the Contempo Christmas set and the Ornament punch. I was so stoked to get it that I just had to use it! It's such a fun and cute little set. You'll be seeing more of it as we inch closer to Christmas! Once I saw the Mojo Monday challenge for this week:



 AND the Curtain Call challenge colors:





I knew exactly what I would be doing tonight. It was so much fun! Here is my card:


It's a bit plain, but I like that about it. Not a lot of frills..none of my fancy ribbon, either! Just a plain little card with simple details. Hope you like it! 




Stamps: Contempo Christmas
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, saraha sand and soft suede in Thoroughly Modern dsp (stampin up); unknown dsp (stripes)
Ink: Real Red
Extras: Versamark, pearls, and Black embossing powder (stampin up); Black satin ribbon (papertrey)

Oh, Keva, this is brilliant! Such a simple (but not at all plain!) design with so much impact. Love that bg paper and the pearls. You may have just put me over the top with this Contempo Christmas set! Thanks for playing the Curtain Call this week!

This is not too plain at all! I love the "bow" on it! Such a cute way to do it! The way the ornament is on the card makes it look like it is hanging! very pretty!
