Merry Monday Pink and Silver

Hello and Merry Monday!

Kathy chose a fun color challenge for us this week.

Although I'm a traditional kind of gal most of the time, favoring
red and green on my Christmas cards,
I love to see pink and silver.
I think it makes such elegant Christmas cards.

I can't wait to see what  you come up with!

I've used the retired Snow Swirled set
stamping in Encore Silver and
embossing with Silver Embossing Powder.
I did the same thing with the sentiment.

The fancy rectangle is a NBUS
from Christmas.

And since our lovely friend,
is challenging us to use NBUS
(Never Before Used Schtuff)
on our cards, I'll go share this
in her challenge.

Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

Congratulations, Darnell, I see that you are up to 541 Followers.

I hope you'll pull out your silver, pink and white
and join us at
Merry Monday!

I'm really glad you stopped by.
