Metallic Holiday

I dropped in this morning to see what the Ways To Use It challenge was. Turns out Julia is having trouble with her computer (darn thing) so DawnL was our hostess! Her challenge...use metallic paper. Well, I was pretty sad because I do not have any of the new yummy metallic paper.
However, at supper tonight, my husband told me that he had saved the Laura Secord chocolate box (had even put it in my craft room) because he said, "there was some really nice green snowflakes and stuff" and he thought I might be able to use it for something. Well, you know what.... it was METALLIC GREEN!!! So, off to work I set to make a card!!
The sentiment is from Holiday Wishes (papertrey ink) and that bling is from the dollar store! Just a bit of black and white cardstock was all that was needed!
My hubby is the best guy ever!!
Thanks for visiting.

Very Resourceful... And what a beautiful card!

....and Yes.. your husband is wonderful... for thinking of the possibilities of turning trash into treasures. My husband does the same thing and I am so thankful... so nice to know they're thinking about us, huh?

TFS ... now I feel the urge to search the house for something shiny!

Happy Holidays

How wonderful that he would see the treasure in that box!! Myself, I am always saving things for stuff like that--the guys don't think of that stuff in my house *wink* Your hubby has a good eye! That is a very pretty card indeed! TFS . . . hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! :) Kel

Gorgeous - esp. love that tree (and the fact that it was made from the innards of a chocolate box!). Does it still smell good!??

Wow, stunning card and a special story behind it. I'm always surprised when my hubby thinks of these things. Maybe they are trainable after all! Ha!
