No Patterned Paper at CCAYR November Challenge!

Good Morning Everyone,  November already, it's scary how time is just flying past, all the more reason to make the most of every day.

Just a quick post from me today showing my card for CCAYR, and this time we are looking for cards with out using pattered paper

I've tried to keep my card fairly simple by using a SB Embossing Folder edged with a little Brilliance Gold Ink,
Die'sire Bell Die, SB die to stamp my sentiment on to which is from CC
Gold Lace from Hobby Crafts, Liquid Pearls in Gold and a Gem from my stash

A very quick card to make.  Do visit the Challenge Blog at;
and see what the other DTs have made, you're bound to beautiful inspirational cards.
Good luck with the challenge.

Hi Kate
Who needs the patterned paper when you have beautiful embossing like this. Its a smasher!
Meant to say yesterday, I'm an Estee Lauder girl myself but knowing how terrific your complexion is, may have to look at this Liz Earle stuff.
T minus 4 days now!

Thank goodness for embossing folders, I have few ideas of how to produce a card with no patterned papers,this is superb the swirls snowflakes and stars are so deeply embossed they jump out at you, the bells and bow in gold finish it off perfectly.
