Joan's Challenge 12-6-12

Hello and happy day! This weeks challenge is to make a white and blue card, have an oval, use an embossing folder and use a bow. I missed a week or was it two? Our computor was down for over a week and well, this time of year can be busy. The shopping is finished. Amen. Some people get annoyed or troubled by our gift giving society. It's too commercial and on and on. I rather enjoy it. The act of giving a gift to someone, the right gift, the perfect gift and knowing they like it is gratifying to me. Ofcourse, I know "you can't take it with you". Enjoy it while you're here. And, here's my card and enjoy it!

Two folders were used on this card. The background "snow" comes as a two pack from Sizzix. The Tall Pine in the oval is also a two pack Tim Holtz, and  is also from Sizzix. The oval is a Spellbinders called Labels Ten (S5-022) And, finally the bow is a die from Impression Obsession, DIE026-Q and it's called Fancy Ornament. I ordered it just for the bow-you can use it on all kinds of cards.
The corners were punched out and white brads were also added.
You can find the IO die and the Spellbinders Labels Ten on Joan's site. You could also order the Sizzix folders.

Merry Christmas.
