Happy Christmas Eve!!! (and Baroque Motifs part 1)

Are you ready to tear into some gifts? I am! I hope there's no coal in my stocking though! YIKES! That would suck big time...LOL!

Anywho...here is a card (of a series) for a swap. I haven't used my SU sets in a LONG time like I use to...so it was time to dust off some and use it for this swap. The swap called to create your own background without using ANY of the new stuff like embossing (ex: Cuttlebug) OR ANY designer/patterned paper. I thought this swap was GENIUS so I joined for a spot. I may take another now that I'm done with these! LOL! Being that I'm such a DP hoarder...I need to start making my own "DP"! ;) Besides...the good thing about this is that you can customize your BG as you wish! Neat huh? Anywho...what do you think? BTW...giving credit where credit is due...this card was a CASE of THIS CARD! I just LOVED the elegance of it and it screamed to me...USE ME!!! Plus I love Baroque Motifs and I had neglected it long enough!


Supplies:
CS/DP: KKiss, BGrey, & Bright White
Ink: KKiss, GGrey, & BBlack
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, En Francais, & Elegant Cheer
Embellishments: satin flowers, flat back pearls (from Pretties kit), & pre-adhesived bling
Others: dauber


Hugs,
Gabby
May you have a GREAT Christmas and hope you get some good new goodies toplay with! I'll be extra nice in hopes my Santa gives me some goodies to play with...or $$$ to buy some goodies! ;) I already know he got me a couple of those new Nesties...so I'm SUPER stoked about that! :D
