Blue Christmas

Don't you love that Elvis song? It's sooo different from the other carols playing on the all-Christmas music channels that you always notice it.

So when the challenge at Less Is More became 'Shades of Blue' at the same time a bunch of the Christmas in July challenges were posted, I thought I'd try a non-traditional card.

For the challenges at:
Less Is More - CAS with Shades of Blue
The Paper Players - Christmas in July
Allsorts Challenge Blog - Anything goes

The recipe:
Images: CHF Scene It! winter
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Shimmery silver ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Please leave a comment, and come again soon!
