Mel's Weekly Challenge No.1

Mel's weekly challenge for this week was to make a Christmas card using non-christmas colours. I have wanted to have a go at this design technique, of reverse masking, for AGES!!! I think it is such a simple but very beautiful idea. I have seen lots of cards using this idea (one cuts circles out of some scrap paper and then uses the holes for a stencil to make the Christmas baubles - neat huh!!) And when I went looking for the challenge post on Mel's blog, to attach this to, I found one there also LOL. I'm very please with how it turned out (I think it looks very similar to just about everyone else's so I can't go too wrong LOL)

Supplies used: (All Stampin' Up of course!!!)
Stamp Sets: Many Merry Messages, Season of Joy
Inks: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose (sponged shading on bauble), Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant
Card stock: Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum, Whisper White
Extras: Ribbon, Brads, Diamond Dust glitter, Sponges, 2-Way glue pen
