  4. Karen, your green monochromatic green card is beautiful... so much texture with the patterned papers and embossing... gorgeous card. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and Jingle Belles challenges.

    1. Thank you, Suzanne. I appreciate your comment on behalf of DT and JBC.

  5. Karen, love your use of Soft Succulent for your holiday card! It's become one of my favorite SU colors for just about any occasion! The embossed background really is pretty against your paper choice. Very clever to use a strip of your DSP on the inside, too!! Thank you for sharing your card and creative talents with us at Double Trouble!!! -Donna
