More gray?  YES, please!!!  Could IBATLT possibly know how they thrill me with this? 

For #74, my hands couldn't reach for the cardstock fast enough... thanks Maria, and Tracey!


and, just because I could, I did...


You've got to accent the negative ... never throw away those snippets, peeps!!

Oh my gosh, Michele...both of your cards are absolutely GORGEOUS! I love how you showcased your star with those fabulous splatters and your embossed horizontal stripes and sprig on the 2nd card is just beautiful! Both cards are so elegant and definitely winners in my book!

Wow, both cards are so simple, elegant, and fabulous take on the photo! Love the star and stripe embossing. Clever use of the gold die-cut negative! Great job, Michele!

These are both fantastic, Michele!

Stunning cards, Michele. The colors are so striking. I adore the addition of the white dots on the first card. Sure makes the star shine. The embossing on the second is so clever. Both are fabulous!

Gray? I thought it was navy blue. Your embossed star (the same one I used thanks to you) looks so elegant with it's little snowy accent Michele. How did you do that? Better yet, how did you ever think of that? I know you to tell me to use my leftovers. One of these days I'll actually do it. ;)

Saw your first wonderful creation on Instagram, and was floored by its beauty there. Seeing your 2nd card, as well as the 1st one again, is indeed a treat - they are BOTH gorgeous, Michele!

I know I'm really late visiting, Michele, but oh my, what stunning cards! It was so worth the wait to see these. So striking and elegant!

I fell in love with the first card! CASed it in a similar way, different colors, for our pastor’s Christmas card. I thought it would be perfect and used Peace as the keyword. TFI, love your use of grey and metallics on many cards. ♥️
