Hope Holidays Shine

Hey there....

Playing today in a couple of challenges with this creation.
I am entering it into the Mix It Up Challenge at Ellen Hutson as they are collaborating with W Plus 9, so I figured I might as well CASE Maureens card at the Throwback Thursday Challenge:

I originally was going to use Navy and Khaki colors, but the Gray was calling my name....which leads to this also being entered into the color challenge at Pinterest Inspired.
I did end up using her layout on my card. :)

The squiggles at the top and bottom are from Ellen Hutson, as is the tiny portion of the sentiment.
The "hope" die is by W Plus 9.

I stamped the jingle bell in Warm Wool ink, then stamped again with Delicata Silvery Shimmer giving it a very rich look.
"hope" was coated with Stardust Stickles.

Not traditional holiday colors, but still has a festive feel.  :)
