Getting Ahead for 2010

My first card for Christmas 2010. I thought I'd try to make one each week this year so I'll have some ready next Christmas with no stress come December. Now, I know I'm one behind already, since we are in the second week of January, but oh well, not going to stress about it!

Sparkle has a challenge on her awesome blog each Sunday for a Christmas card to keep up on making them year round. Her challenge this week, #6 was to use embossing.

This also is my card for the Verve release week color challenge on SCS (VSJAN10C). The colors were black, gray and turquoise. Check out the challenges and the new release on Friday night. Can't wait to see what Julee has in store for us this month!

Lastly, this is for Tami's sketch challenge for our Glitterbees blog group. I left the bow off my card, since I didn't really have room for it. Check out the Glitterbees challenge blog and feel free to play along with us.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Verve Ornamental Christmas and Holly Jolly
Ink: Memento
Paper: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Gray
Embellishments: copics, crystal effects, cuttlebug embossing folders, dimensionals, SU brads and silver cord
