The Christmas Spirit

I was so thrilled when I learned that Bells & Boughs made it into the new catalog.  I fell in love with this set when it came out in the Mini Occasions catalog.  However, I have struggled to design a card with this set that I like.  But I wasn't about to give up.  And this weekend, I stumbled onto a design I think I'm ok with.  So while we're in the midst of a triple-digit week here in Texas, I give you Christmas Spirit!

I love the addition of texture and pattern the Elegant Lines embossing folder gives.  I also really like the color combination of Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke.  It's such a nice, muted color palette.  I've played with this on Whisper White using Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.  It's also very pretty (not shown at this time, but I'm working on it).

So to everyone who is also sweating it out in the heat, think cool thoughts!!

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
