On to my card for this Week for MMSC23


Don't you love the colors of this card and papers, blue and red?  I love those two together!  See the beads inside of the shaker and the string of silver beads surrounding the 'dome' shaker.  I thought the peppermint paper and embellishment was a fitting touch to the Girl drinking Coca.

A side view of the card, now you can get a better look as to what I call a dome shaker, see how it curves around like a dome, very cool for a winter 'Happy Holiday' card, reminds me of a snow dome.


The completed envelope, with velvet ribbon trimming the addressee area.  Again a Peppermint.

Thank you for stopping by today, I enjoyed your visit.  Also notice the blog candy in the post below, please sign-up if you are interested in it.  ~~  Blessings, Jane

Well, you can't just buy that ~ It is actually a reused package that something else came in that I thought WOW, I can use it on a card!!!I have one more left as I bought two of that item so I suspect I will use it yet this holiday season. Thank you all for your comments, I have enjoyed reading them so start saving and seeing your discards as reusable and recycle.
