This week's Sweet Stamps Challenge is:

Simple Christmas

I am so excited to mention, that the original card I created for today's post, was picked up by Paper Creations to be in the fall magazine next year!!!  So excited!!

So with that I needed to create a new card!  Well I am behind on my cards this year, so with this challenge in mind, I decided to put together a few cards very quickly!
Simple, yet I think so elegant!!  I love how they turned out!

I love snowflakes!
So I used a few of SweetStamps.com snowflakes to create all these cards and then a few different sentiments! 

Close-up of the traditional colored card:

I also had to create some fun non-traditional colored cards:
LOVE this color palette! 


As well as just the pinks!! :)

And purples!
The added embossed silver snowflakes adds a nice touch and sparkle!  

The fun colorful one:
How fun!!
