Happy Holly Days

It often seems as if the time attending a crop is, for the most part, spent chatting with old friends and making new ones with very few cards or projects reaching completion. While attending a crop a few days ago, I was able to finish three cards and begin a fourth. I was in great company so why was this crop different? I believe it was because we kept it small due to having limited space. There were nine of us in attendance and most of us knew one another. We had such a good time with each of us accomplishing several projects.

My card was inspired by the sketch at Try Stampin' on Tuesday #435. There is also an optional twist to create a non-traditional Christmas Card. I think that my choice of black, pink and rose gold is non-traditional but still festive. This biweekly challenge begins on Tuesday, November 19, ending on Sunday, December 1, 2019.

A die-cut panel of black glitter cardstock was adhered to a white card base. A smaller die-cut panel of patterned paper was adhered using foam tape. In keeping with the sketch, two banners were adhered. The sentiment was adhered along with the snowflake. I added a pair of tiny tags to the upper left because I thought the design needed more balance. The inside was decorated with scrap paper and a small coordinating sentiment, "Peace on earth will come to stay, when we live Christmas every day."
