Merry and Bright!

Tonight is our demo meeting-one of my favorite nights of the month. There's something so comforting about being a room of ladies that share your passion for stamps! It's probably comforting to know that you're not the only one who gets excited about a new roll of ribbon or a package of cardstock :) Though I'm assuming if you're visiting my blog today you probably share a little of that same passion so WELCOME!!

This is my card swap for the meeting tonight and I have to say that I love it!! I REALLY didn't think I liked the Paisley Prints stamp set at all in the new mini, but the more I use it the more I LOVE IT!! You may have noticed on all my cards with this set that I'm really loving using a darker marker and highlighting some of the paisleys. I think it just makes the image POP!
This card is loaded with new stuff from the mini, lets start from the top down. The Snowflake embossing folder is in the new mini. Unfortunately this card covers a bunch of it up but trust me the snowflake embossing folder is soooo pretty!!! The Paisley Prints stamp set is new and so is that greeting, it's from the Merry and Bright set.
I also used the 2 tags die on this card, and of course no Christmas tree is complete without a little sparkle so I added a rhinestone to the top of the tree!
I made this card a few days ago and decided to use it for my swap but I modified it just a little.
I love them both!! What about you, which one is your favorite number 1 or 2?

You always make great cards. I like them both, but the first one is my favorite (though I like the greeting on the second one).
