Vintage Ornaments

Hello friends, I hope your day is going well.

Today's card is another challenge combo - Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and the Embellish the Cure Color Challenge. Mix those two, and here's what I made:

I started with a base of Smokey Shadow and then added a layer of Sweet Blush that had been stamped with the next Background Basics: Text Style II. I trimmed an oval that had been cut with the Petite Oval Nestabilities and then added the ornaments. The plain ornaments and decorative patterns are all from Vintage Ornaments. The long ornament with the frosty glaze is my favorite. I added some rhinestone and glitter for the bling. The Happy Holidays sentiment is from Vintage Ornaments as well.. the font is fun and funky.. the stamp was curved on the block. The finishing touch was some silver elastic cord to hang my ornaments. I hope you like it!


Stamps: Vintage Ornaments, Background Basics: Text Style II - Papertrey Ink
Cardstock: Smokey Shadow, Sweet Blush, White - Papertrey Ink
Ink: Sweet Blush, Raspberry Fizz, Smokey Shadow - Papertrey Ink
Other: Tourmaline glitter - Martha Stewart Crafts; Petite Oval Nestabilities - Spellbinders; Silver elastic cord - SU!; gray rhinestones
