Merry Monday Challenge #3


This week seems to just have flown me by and here I am on the last day showing my card for Lesley's Merry Monday challenge.

As soon as I saw this bauble image from JustRite Stampers, I thought of a wintery look which means white and a Nordic look so decided to use purple and gold [ silver would have looked nice too I think].

So I have gold embossed the bauble, stamped it again with Stampin' Up! Elegant Eggplant and just cut out the reindeer strip and added it to the top of the embossed bauble. It was then cut out with a Nestie die. I added little Martha Stewart branches to the top and SU cord for the loop [retired here long ago!] The layer under the bauble is embossed with a folder from SU and the greeting from JustRite Stampers is cut out with an SU punch.

It is nice to have yet another card finished for my stash!

Your card is so beautiful. I really like the little gold loop for a hanger for your gorgeous ornament and the pine boughs too!

Another beauty Jean! I love your scored background- wish I could muster up enough Christmas spirit like you to join in too...but I am filing all the sketches away for when I do find some Christmas mojo!

Very pretty: I love all your embossing. I think the main image could be hung on the tree. Nice!
