  5. It always amazes me how different the same design looks with just a change of color!
    They both look so festive, and you've used a really beautiful embossing folder for the backgrounds!

  13. Wow! What a great couple of cards and you're right: it never hurts to have more Christmas cards ready to go! I really enjoyed seeing how you did a similar pattern with reversed colors. I was amazed at how different they looked even with similar components. I also liked how you combined the kraft with the bling! These are fabulous and I hope your good weather holds. We just got through having rain, so I'm looking forward to better weather. Thanks so much for sharing these with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
