Shimmer and Shine

Hope all of you are doing well, since I was not in blogland this weekend I sure made up for it. I have 3 posts for today so, be sure to check them out. This week for Christmas Stampin' All Year Long, Maria has an inspiration challenge for us. Create your card using anything that you can gather from this image below.
Here is what my card looks like after taking a couple of colors from it. These colors are my next favorite set of colors for Christmas aside of the traditional red and green.
The image I am using here is from Elzybells Stamps. Isn't she cute! I bought this stamp last year in hopes that I would use it then but you know how that goes. I actually have lots and lots of stamps that I have not used since I got them. But being able to create Christmas Cards during the year will help me to. Now I just have to find the time to use all of my other "non Christmas" stamps.
To view the other creations from the DT for Christmas Stampin' All Year Long scroll down on my side bar to the right. Thanks so much for starting your week with me!! Here are the card details:
Stamp: Elzybells
Paper: Pink Pirouette, DCWV The Christmas Stack, Neenah White CS
Ink: Copics
Accessories: Nestabilities, Ribbon

Awesome job, Jodi!! You did a wonderful job with the color challenge. It's non-traditional but it sort of fun to create something different. That image is a cutie!! I love it! I'm the same way. . .I have a lot of stamps and I mean seriously a lot and I'm ashamed to say I haven't used half of them but I keep buying more! It's crazy!

As always, you made such a beautiful card. I love seeing them each week!

BTW. . I uploaded your card on the blog. It was on there so I did it for you!

Hope you have a fantastic week!

I like the use of blue & pink for Christmas colors. Makes me want to go drink some hot cocoa! I have yet to indulge in the Elzybell & Anya stamps! Your cards are convincing me to go & get some!
