This Week's Challenge Card!

Talk about easy and quick, this elegant black and white card has gotten lots of attention here at Joan's Gardens.   It has been a real hit and so beautiful in real life.
I don't know if you can  see it, but I embossed the black velvet/suede paper first with Nellie Snellen's Christmas Oval 1 Embossing folder before attaching it to the Exquisite Labels Eleven. 
After gluing the layers, I popped up the Memory Box Candle die.
Easy peasy is this week's challenge and I hope you love it.
Products I used for this card are:
Glowing Candle - 98661 - Memory Box
Exquisite Labels Ellen -  S6-008 - Spellbinders
Christmas Oval 1 - EFE002 - Nellie Snellen
