Dixie Cochran said...

Paula, I like the sparkle on this card! I tried to imagine the card with just one background pattern, and while that would work, it would definitely not be as "eye-catchy" as this. I'm most impressed that you sewed in a circle! I'm CASEing this design!!

ThePurplePlace said...

This is such a stunning card! I think the gold foils (elements) are what really draw me to it. You did an fantastic job!

I also love the design and I am going to make a quick sketch of it, to keep on hand!!

Hugs,
Lis

PS: I have some BLOG CANDY and hope you'll hop on over!!

You do NOT have to include me in yours, as I have this, so if You happen to pick me -- Please drawn a second name!

Yay for the half and half design! I absolutely love your card with all of the gold - on the papers, the embossing, and the ribbon! I am a metal girl, have to admit, lol!

KellyRae said...

OMGosh! LOVE your card - the gold and burgundy are gorgeous (and I must admit sparkly is something I miss when creating my own OWH cards - I worry that I'll choose the wrong sparkly so I don't do any lol). Your card is absolutely FESTIVE!

andrea said...

I love the look of foil on Christmas cards...yours has such a classic, elegant look and burgundy adds to the feeling of depth and richness. Thanks also for your tutorial on getting set up for the hop, helped so much!

Stunning!

Yolanda said...

Shiny gold love. Terrific sentiment stamp.

Ronda S said...

I like the 'cut' of the background pieces, the way it doesn't go from corner to corner. The ornament definitely makes it super elegant with the ribbon, bow, and GOLD!

Kathryn said...

The color combo you used is such a classic! I really like the fact that your background papers aren't divided exactly corner to corner. It adds a little something extra!

Nancy M said...

I like how you have used different elements and put them all together in perfect harmony--they all play nicely!! TFS-very pretty

Nancy M said...

SO sorry!!! Forgot my addy--
