Bah! Humbug! Challenge --- The Blues

The ladies at Bah! Humbug! have the blues. When they have the blues, we all have the blues, too.  Why so blue?  This is the last challenge for this year :-( . OMG what will we do?  Well, for starters, for our last challenge the theme is "BLUE".  How appropriate. Also, now is the time to begin distributing all those gorgeous Christmas cards that have been piling up all year. This has been so much fun and I can't wait to start again in January!

So, here is my blue card:

This card was sinfully simple. This image of a snow covered forest is from Penny Black and comes to life with Winter White embossing powder. It is layered on silver metallic card stock.  The blue card stock has little flecks of white, like snow.  This fabulous ribbon says it all:  Let it snow!  Add three snowflake embellies and voila!, one simply blue card.

Here's a close up of the snowy forest. The song Silent Night comes to mind about now. As much as I love December, it just won't be the same without Max, Ann, and Irene every week.  I love y'all, ladies!

Thanks for stopping by!  Actually, since you are this far, how about scrolling down just a little and taking a look at the card I posted just a little while ago.  Yep, two posts today!
