Christmas Card challenge week 9 and CPS100

This week I am playing along with Sparkle again.  For week 9 of the Christmas Card Challenge she challenged us to create a Christmas card using no glitter, sparkle or bling.  At first I thought it would be easy, since i don't use much of that on my cards, but it was harder than I thought.   You will see some glitter in my card, but it is the DCWV paper, not an added extra.  I hope that will still count.

Here is my stab at 2 christmas cards with no bling.  I also used this sketch  over at CPS.  The challenge this week over at CPS is to use this sketch and use a Gina K stamp, which I don't have any as of right now.  So I used the sketch to get my CCC cards done.

Here are the cards.

By the way, I found a inexpensive way to make a photo box.  I'm hoping to have it completed by Wednesday and I TRULY hope it will improve the look of the cards I upload.  I am a really good photographer in everything except handmade cards!!
