The Paper Players - Jaydee's Color and CAS Challenge

This week the Paper Players are working with some CAS designs and crisp colors ( just like the weather!) for Jaydee's challenge this week. I tried to keep this card simple but was just loving all the bling and glimmer that SU has to offer this season. The glimmer paper, the embossing powders, the dazzling details etc. were all calling to me. They really pop when combined and contrasted with the dark Night of Navy.

I started with embossing Bells and Boughs with silver embossing powder and making an extra poinsettia to brush with dazzling diamonds glitter and pop up with a dimensional. Again, My Digital Studio has come to my rescue and I printed the sentiment to my specified size using the Beautiful Season Digital Stamp. The Silver Glimmer Paper, glimmer brad and jewels all sparkle and are in keeping with the silver of the color scheme.
