All That Glitter in Blue and White

Here I am again with another Christmas card - it's only 48 days till Christmas, so you'll be seeing much more of them these days ;)
I used All That Glitters set from Flourishes - stamped the ornaments on watercolor paper, embossed them with silver EP and colored them with different shades of blue ink. Then I stamped the branches with Navy Blue ink. The rest of the card is all white, to keep the ornaments as the focal point.
I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Flourishes - FLLCNOV10 - cool shades of blue
Simon Says Challenge - All white
Craft Your days away - all white

Materials:
Stamps: Flourishes - All That Glitters, Sentiment & snowflakes on the card base - Stampin Up
Paper: Watercolor paper, white CS, white shimmery paper
Media: Versamark, Stampin Up blue inks
Other: Silver embossing powder, MS punches, White pleated ribbon - Really reasonable ribbon

Love blue & silver on Christmas cards & this is so beautiful. Love that you kept the rest of the card white to make the ornaments more of the focal point. 48 days, seriously? I better get busy :)

Wow, this is gorgeous! I'd seen a couple of "white" challenges around at the moment and I just couldn't get it to work for a Christmas card, but you've done a fab job! :D
