NOEL

If you haven't, be sure to sign up now to be a Penny Black Club Member. Then on Friday, Nov. 8, you will receive an e-mail with a link to shop the Fan Favorites sale. You can see examples on the Penny Black Blog all week & today I'm joining in the fun. Here are 2 cards using the gorgeous 
antique noel, 4340K.  
The first card is white embossed on water color paper & then spritzed with red, green & gold Tattered Angels mists.  I filled in the berries & ovals in the letters with my white gel pen. Hard to tell, but I used markers to give some more color to the flowers, leaves & pine cones before a bit of Stickles was added. I thought Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles made just the elegant frame it needed. Pearls & ribbon finish it off.  Edited to add: I'm entering the challenge at Penny Black & More.
My second card is also white embossed, but then Distress Inks festive berries, evergreen bough & iced spruce were sponged onto the panel before diecutting into an oval.  Stickles & tiny red gems provide the embellishment. Spellbinders Labels 10 is used for the mat which is mounted with foam tape to the card front embossed with a Cuttlebug Anna Griffin folder & sprayed with Therm-O-Web Glitter Dust.
Hope I've given you some ideas.  Be sure to join the club so you'll be able to shop the sale.  Thanks for taking time to visit my blog.
