Card Design: Lady Anne's Progressive Christmas Challenge #4-First Card

Once again, it is time to submit my cards for the Lady Anne's Progressive Christmas Challenge.  This will be one of two posts.  I'd love to combine them but all the linkies for the challenges are so particular and won't let you submit two images from the one post.  All the preamble will be here and the next post will simply be card details.

So here we go... 

Each month Lady Anne hosts a progressive Christmas Challenge where we get two images to play with.  As long as we submit a card with at least one of them, we are eligible to receive two more the next month.  Quite the deal isn't it?  She is trying it out for six months to see how it goes.  I hope it is a success, because this is certainly one incentive to help me stay ahead of the Christmas card panic!  I now have eight cards in the pot.  Woo hoo!

This month the sponsor is 

Here is my card and the details, I hope I haven't forgotten anything...

Digital Sentiment:
  • Miss you beary much:  This is a sentiment that I picked up as a freebie from Netty's Cards.  She has a lot of wonderful freebies that can be found HERE.  You also should check out her cards.  She is truly gifted.
  • Blue and gold sheer ribbon is Craft brand from Dollarama.
  • White flowers are from Dollarama.


Digital Sentiment:
  • One I created.


Paper Products:
  • Card Base and shadow for inside sentiment: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white. 
  • Designer Papers:  Blue Snowflake (front & inside) and Noel paper (front)--Recollections Bright Christmas Cardstock Paper.

How fun is this!! I love that nontraditional image for Christmas. It's wintry and fun and perfect to express the climate and season. Annette's sentiments are WONDERFUL. I have an entire folder of them too. These two are just perfect together. :)
