Delightful Challenges Thursday

** DOING THE HAPPY DANCE **  I am so excited that Thursday is finally here!!

Oh, wait.... Good Morning.  I hope you're doing well today.  I am so happy that you're here and now back to happy dancing.  You know that moment that you make a card that you're so darn pleased with you just can't wait to share it?  Yeah, well, this is that moment.

This week's challenge at Delightful Challenges is called...

You're a Gem
(add gems to your card)

And it's also the new release and this Christmas release I think is Wendy's best one yet!  I got to use Snowflake Shelly.  I also used Gifts & Garlands and Christmas Hugs Sentiments to create this card.  Let me show you...


So here's the front of the card where Snowflake Shelly is prominently featured.  Isn't she cute in her silvery, wintry outfit?  I also used the Holly Jolly digi paper pack - I just loved the Silver Trees paper.  It worked perfectly with my card scheme.  And now of the inside....

Wait for it....

Ta da!!....

It's a pop up!!


OK - so pop up cards have been around for forrrr-evverrrr but it's the first one that I actually made successfully.  I watched Gina K's video on pop up cards over and over and then I went for it.


Here's a closer look the top part and all it's pretty, shiny bling.


And the bottom view of the sentiment.

I do hope you'll join us over at the Delightful Challenges blog to play along.  It'll be fun!
