Elegant Christmas

I am sharing a quick card today, everything I do lately seems to be rushed, but I am getting through some things - which is a great feeling, especially as November is a HUGE month for me - I have some exciting things coming up that I cannot share at this time...but as soon as I can - you know I will!
 
 
 
 
I created this card for my Card Design Class next week, we are working on at least one Christmas Card per Class, along with one other card.  I was inspired by some of the cards over on the Spellbinders Ideas Gallery - if you have not been there before you need to check it out - be prepared to be inspired.
 
 
 

I have used a retired Spellbinders Die, but one of my favourites - Fleur de Lis Pendants, as my centre piece , along with the newly released Hexagons added a recycled button and some Want2Scrap pearls.  My Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® ...


 
 
I have also used Liquid Pearls in the corners of the embossing.  The sentiment is from a retired Layers of Color stamp set.
