Creative Clear Stamps "texture" challenge

Our DT Challenge coordinator challenged us this week to make a card with "texture". I always love adding crimped paper to a card. For this card, just used a basic crimper tool, nesties and added some ribbon and mini pearls, but the stamped sentiment is what makes this card!
It's part of the Let It Snow stamp set ...this set is really helping my Christmas card box grow, grow, grow!





Beautiful doesn't always have to be colored or complicated!

Stamp set:  Clear Creative Stamp set  "Let it Snow"  from Creative Vision
Paper: Deep purple and metallic lavendar from stash, black and white
Ink: Vivid's purple
Embellishments: adhesive mini pearls, ribbon from stash
Technique: matting, crimping

I love this color combo as well as blue/white and red/black/white... for Christmas cards along with the traditional colors  :))
Have a blessed day,
