PCD Release Day!


So have you seen the full reveal of the newest PCD sets yet? If not they are at the bottom of this post.
These last two card feature the tree images and sentiments from Retro Christmas along with the houndstooth background from Retro Christmas Backgrounds.

Most of you know how in love I am with any orange and pink combo, and that I decorate my home each holiday season with those colors, just as my mother did when I was growing up. So I couldn't resist making a bright, cheerful Christmas card with a retro feel!
If only I had some pompoms! lol!

I went with a more classic feel for this card, and used lots of silver embossing powder to add some shimmer. This one is simple and easy to mass produce. Don't you love those silver button brads? *swoon*

Thanks for stopping by these last few days to see all of my sneak peeks. If you haven't had a chance to purchase the new sets, here they are for your perusal:

Have a great day,
*mwah*
