A Red and White Christmas

Happy Monday everyone, I am sharing this card that I created for two challenges, the first at Joan's Gardens where the recipe this week is to:

Use a die
Use a Christmas Sentiment
Use some kind of light (Candle, Christmas Tree Lights, snow etc)
Use Red and White and additional colors if you wish

and at The Stamping Boutique whose beautiful image this is, I went shopping this week, lol. They want us to create a card or project for someone special and I am making this for my lovely stepmother, she married my Dad after my Mom's passing and was a very good wife and partner to him in the last years of his life, and I am grateful for the kindness she always showed to him and his family.

I am cutting you close on the challenge at TSB but you have until 6 AM on Thursday to get in at Joan's. Hope your will check out these blogs.

I love the way this turned out. My papers are from the Teresa Collins Christmas Home paper pack.
Here is the inside where I placed my Christmas sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful week.

HiPatti, this is really a beautiful card! Love the verse you choose for the inside. Love all the glitter for the snow. The card made me cold. Great job!
Hugs, Sarah

What a gorgeous Christmas card. I love the glitter in the sky - like falling snow - and the lovely background paper.
