Festive Friday #36

Howdy and happy Sunday blogging buddies!  Today I'm here to share a card for a challenge I like to follow, but rarely get the chance to participate in:  Festive Friday!  For their current 2-week challenge, they are asking us to be inspired by this photo:

Isn't that a gorgeous scene??  How I wish my house looked like that during the holiday season!  But is what I came up with:

I took my inspiration from the white and silver colors, the 3 presents on the right side of the fireplace, and the word "NOEL" leaning on the candle on the table.  All three gifts are popped up on foam tape, with the middle one using 3 layers! The sentiment is also popped up so...this is DEFINITELY a hand delivered card!  :)  The silver backing layers, the silver on the MS dp, and the presents are all shimmery paper, which, as always, is lost in the picture taking process!  I also embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder.

This card will also be added to Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Extra, Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge, and Craftyhazelnut's Christmas challenge, Layer it Up Thanks for stopping by to take a look...make sure you check out these challenges too!!
