How is it November already? No better time to get hopping on your holiday cards. If you're looking for a kickstart, come check us out at the Happy Little Stampers Christmas blog challenge where we have a new prompt.
Today's card design was heavily inspired by Yana Smakula. She's the queen of dark backgrounds with grid style elements.
I stamped, colored and die cut my elements and after arranging them to my liking, heat embossed the sentiment in white onto the black panel to create the fourth element of the grid. I added a drop of white Nuvo drops and a sprinkling of glitter to the pom poms, a few lines of sparkly gel pen for highlights and finally some gold pearls for embellishments.

I invite you to visit our blog for more holiday inspiration. We'd love to see your card in our gallery. Remember, the prompts are always optional but remember that only holiday cards qualify.
As always, thanks so much for spending a bit of your day with me!
