Festive Friday photo challenge

Festive Friday has another photo challenge:

The photo's are so gorgeous, it's hard to choose what to focus on! I adore all the white.

My eyes drew to the candles on top of the mantle. It reminded me of the new Memory Box die that I can't seem to stop making cards with. It's called, "tapered candle."

I think it's an elegant die, and love it on an all white card. I cut off part of an embossed panel from a Darice embossing folder to adhere by it's side. I like the way the ornaments flow down. I also added a white poinsettia with a pearl in it's center, also from Memory Box.

The sentiment is from SU's "More Merry Wishes." It reminded me of the photo with all the white trimmings in the cozy room.

Check out the other cards here....they are sure to get you in the Christmas mood...even on the hottest days in July!

Well…no wonder you can't stop using that die…it's GORGEOUS!!! Love how you allowed the swirl of it to layer over onto your embossed strip…it creates such a pretty flow to the layout! BEAUTIFUL card! Delighted to have you at Festive Friday!

Oooooooh this is soooo amazing! LOVE the dies and the gorgeous embossing! What a beauty! I just ordered a bunch of the new Memory box dies, but didn't order the candle. Now I might have to go back and get it :) Thanks so much for joining us at Festive Friday! :)
