Ladybug Ink Blog Hop...2013 Holiday Catalog

Welcome to the Ladybug Ink Blog Hop!  This month we were to create something with new product from the 2013 Holiday Catalog.  This years catalog was set up quit a bit differently then it has ever been before.  When I first received it, I couldn't figure out if I was looking at Stampin' Success (a magazine we demonstrators receive every other month) or the new Holiday catalog.  If you have had the opportunity to get your hands on one you probably know what I'm talking about.  If not, go to the Stampin' Up website and check it out!
So, I'm pretty excited about this months card.  It was completely MOC (my own creation).  I guess I "kind of" got some inspiration from one of the samples in the Holiday catalog, but it would be a stretch to call it a CASE.  To make it all the more amazing, a semi-miracle occurred and I actually started and completed this card prior to midnight of the day it was due to post. Therefore, I was able to photograph it in natural light!  It sure does make a difference in the appearance of the card in the pictures.  I thought it was key since I used some of the shimmer spritz that is no longer available.  You can see in the second photo how the front of the card glimmers.
While I was creating this card all sorts if ideas for variations kept popping into my mind, so I have many things to try on the next versions.

Can't wait to send this one off to one of my lucky friends!!!!

Have a fantastic weekend and Happy Stamping!
