A Glittery Lacey Christmas

Well - it's been a busy week - I'm working on all kinds of projects for the April WMS Sneak Peeks and release that start Monday 4/15 (which is also the tax due deadline here in the US, and the Boston Marathon is run in MA!)  and I've been feeling kinda lousy with a spring cold -

But.......   I just had to get a card done and posted for some of my FAV challenges -  so here it is:

I silver embossed the lacey doily and Noel sentiment on the blue panel - then simply added a clear rhinestone to the center.

And here are the challenges:

The April Waltzingmouse Christmas challenge in the Playroom of the WMS Forum - to use at least one non-holiday stamp on your card.
Little Red Wagon Challenge -  to use lace, real or stamped
CAS-ual Fridays -  all that glitters.

I hope you all have a great weekend -  Spring is finally arriving in New England! 

Please remember to stop by beginning on Monday to see what I have to show you for the WMS April Release.

And on Tuesday I'll also be posting a project using a wonderful new template from Creations by AR!

It's going to be a fun filled week!

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Dainty Doilies Large, Compliments of the Season - Two
Paper:  White, Spring Rain - PTI
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories:  silver embossing powder, heat gun, rhinestone - from stash, glue dot.
