FTTC139–Christmas Ornaments

 

Happy Tuesday everyone~

It’s time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC139). We are also previewing the October release set, Holiday Sparkle! The challenge from Cindy is to use *ornament images/elements* for your creation. Please visit Flourishes Blog for more information about the challenge. Looking forward to seeing your creation!!

 

Here is my take :)

I enjoyed making this card so much…I am so ready for working holiday cards now…hope it will last until I make plenty enough for sending out!

I colored the image with Copic markers and added sparkles with glitter pens – It is hard to see the sparkles from the photo though :( The image mat was cut with Nestabilities  and the pines were stamped around the edge.  The card was designed with the cardstocks and designer papers. The red background was dry embossed and the designer paper were punched with border punch. The kraft circle mat was cut with Nestabilities. For the sentiment, the word “sparkle” was drawn with the red glitter pen and attached above the bow. To finish off, the ribbon, poinsettias and rhinestones were embellished.

This card has been submitted to CR84FN Color Challenge 40 (CR84FN40) and Sweet Stop Sketch 129 – revisiting SSS37 (SSS129).
