Simon's January Card Kit 'Thanks' Card

 Hi all :-) It's the first Tuesday of the New Year and I am here with a DT card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge.

This week the theme is

with the option of making a Thank You card/gift

I used the new January Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp which has a perfect stamp set for this challenge in it !!

 The papers and stamps were in the kit and I also used some Enchanted Gold Embossing Powder that was in the December Kit. I used the Perfect Pearls in the kit and splattered it over the card, looks lovely and shimmery IRL

Did you spot the little dab of glue on the top right side of the sentiment banner ? That is where a snowflake was glued on and it fell off without me noticing until I uploaded the piccy, so imagine it with a little snowflake sequin popped on there,   it  makes all the difference   lol  ;-)

and this is the kit, isn't it gorgeous ! It really is like having a Christmas/Birthday every month when the postie delivers the box :-)
 The papers and card stock colours in this kit are so pretty. I love the purples and greys together and I have to say Simon's White ink pad is awesome ! sure creamy and my most fave white ink pad !

 If you haven't subscribed then you should ! Because you're worth it ! :-)

“Use a little GOLD”...
Oh you lucky girl- I've been too busy to use my Jan SSS kit as of yet. It's a nice looking card, I had to look hard for the gold touch. But wow when I found it all I could say was...."OH SO COOL!"

Wishing you a wonderful year. Victoria Lavender
