Pinterest-Inspired Christmas

Just popping in with a quick post, so I can play in Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge, "A Pinterest Christmas," and Stampendous' embossing challenge.


I silver-embossed a sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s Snow Swirled, and made a rhinestone wreath.  This close-up shows the sentiment better than the larger photo below does.


It's a super-simple card, and was inspired by this Pinterest photo --

The silver candlesticks and berry-red shade really spoke to me.  Should have added some touch of green, but thought of that after I did the photos.  ;)

Thanks for coming by!
