May Your Holidays Sparkle...



I LOVE glass blown ornaments and when I spotted this image on Rosemary Dennis' blog I had to get the set! If you haven't been over to Rosemary's blog, please do. She makes some AMAZING cards!

Today's card is pretty simple (for me...)... Hee, hee... I used some cute paper from K & Company (Elizabeth Brownd Visions of Christmas.) I added some gold paper for added bling and after coloring Santa's coat trim I threw on a nice dusting of Diamond Stickles. I used the SB Classic Oval Large for cutting, embossing and lightly edging the image with Desert Sand ink. I split the background Spellbinders Ironworks Motif in two and mounted the pieces to the back of my image. The sentiment was embossed using Versamark and Ranger's Queen Gold Embossing Powder directly on the plaid DP. One more Christmas card down and 40 more to go! :-)

Blessings...
