Blue Ornament

Happy Friday!

I love it when the holiday season starts to permeate the office... lunches with co-workers and treats abound - I love it!

I put together a card last night for the latest Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I was in a Waltzingmouse mood!

I had an old card on my desk that I had made using some of these colors and I thought it would be fun to use them on this card. I stuck with the combination of Night of Navy, Baja Breeze, and White. The ornament stamp is from Sewing Box - Christmas and was stamped twice - once onto white and again onto Baja Breeze. The hearts are also from the same set (the little stripe in the back is from Sewing Box - Hugs). I matted the ornament with an oval I had cut from PTI Linen Vellum. The sentiment is from Very Vintage Christmas. Right before assembly, I gave all the pieces a healthy spray of Perfect Pearls - imagine that you can see the shimmer!

Well, we're headed into the home stretch! I have so many fun things I'd like to share with you in the coming days. Last year when my husband and I started our anniversary to Christmas gift-giving tradition, I was inspired by Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas and created a tag to go along with each one of his gifts. I carried that tradition on this year and have been making different tags for each day. I really love creating this way and would love to share them with you. So look for those coming soon!

Have a great night!
