Paper Players 164

Hello Everyone,

It's been an extremely hot day for September here today.  One of those days where you want to stay out of the heat and in air conditioning.  We thought the best place to be was the Shopping Centre for a few hours.  The added bonus there was I got to buy a new pair of shoes.  My girls also managed to spend some School Holiday Pocket money too.

This is the sketch for this week's challenge over at the Paper Players.  This sketch is by Sandy and is one I really loved.  I'm so glad I could find the time this week to participate.

I'm using some of the Winter Frost Specialty paper on my card with the Holiday Ornament Framelits, Pretty Prints Embossing Folder, Scallop Border punch and the new silver ribbon and Frosty Finish Embellishments today.  This wasn't what I had first intended to make but the heat got the better of me and I felt like using these cool colours.

The cardstock is Coastal Cabana, Whisper White and Island Indigo.  Here is a closeup of that Holiday Ornament cut out with those framelits.
Thanks to the Paper Players for this gorgeous sketch this week.  I think it makes for a very simple but elegant layout for my card.

Hope you like this one.  Thanks so much for calling in to see today's card and leaving me some comments.  I really appreciate them.


  1. Lovely card, Carolyn. I like the way the embossed text continues the vertical line of the DSP. The colors are divine and the silver ribbon is the perfect accent to the gorgeous ornament. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!

    1. Thanks Nancy, it was fun to play with this one.

  2. Awesome, modern Christmas card, Carlolyn! I like how you used DSP for the ornament and then topped it with some white space to show off the embellishment. Thanks for playing along with my sketch challenge this week at The Paper Players!

    1. Thanks very much, Sandy. Awesome sketch this week.

  3. Just looking for the LNS clue and saw this beautiful card. Thanks for sharing. Betty Lee
