Jingle Belles 18

This week I'm honored to be guest designing for Jingle Belles. I've loved playing along since the beginning (though recent weeks I've been a little late with getting there). So here's my prompt, I’ve loved playing along with Jingle Belles and each week looking through my Christmas crafting supplies I realize I have lots of random embellishments that I bought during after Christmas sales that don’t necessarily match up with patterned paper, but I still adore. So I thought why not make a card with just embellishments and no patterned paper and my challenge was born.
Looking through my Christmas embellishments I decided to play with these Maya Road rub-ons which I have a hard time using with patterned paper because of the color palette. I thought they would really stand out on the silver cardstock and added some gems from Studio 18 to accent the rub-ons. The background, sentiment and snowflakes are all separate rub-ons combined to create the design of the card. I know you all have fabulous and gorgeous embellishments that can shine without patterned paper so take this as an opportunity to use them.
I can't wait to see everyone who plays along in my no patterned paper just embellies challenge!
