Paper Players Challenge #27-Make A Christmas Project

This week at the Paper Players we are challenging you to make and share a Christmas project.  We are also very excited to have back our talented Guest Designers Jeannie, Marlene and Anne Marie for the next two weeks.  They are here to help up wrap up the year of great challenges!!

I had about 22 different cards made to share for the Christmas Challenge (just kidding...I only created 21...hehehe)  but I wanted to create something different!!  After a lot of traditional green and red cards, I decided to use Baja Breeze, Real Red and Shimmer White for my colours.  I love the Baja and Red together.  I pulled out the set called "Tree Trimmings".  This is such a pretty set and I combined it with the "Bright Christmas" set from the holiday mini catalogue.  I used some Elegant Soiree Designer Paper and some pearls at the top of each ornament.  This is clean and simple and I like the way it turned out!!  I hope you do too!

Please visit the Paper Players Blog to see the GORGEOUS creations from our Design Team and to link up your Christmas Project.  I can't wait to visit your blog and to see what you have created to share with us!!

Thanks for stopping by!!  I love hearing from you, please let me know if you have any questions!!
