Good grief! I can't believe it's Friday night already. Where has the week gone? And for that matter, the whole month of September has just flown by! I need to really buckle down and get making more cards! Of course, that's always the plan, but seems like it doesn't really happen too often. Oh well, I can still dream, can't I? Ok, enough fussing and let's get down to business here. This card took me two days to finish. I knew the layout I wanted to use and what color to stamp the ornaments. The problem came trying to decide what color to use for the background. This is what I came up with...
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy
Accessories: Big Shot with Lacy Brocade TIEF and Holiday Ornaments Framelits, Old Olive and Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, retired oval punch, Glue Dots, and Dimensionals
I love the richness of these dark colors together, and the Lacy Brocade TIEF is a fitting background for the card. I really debated about using rhinestones or glitter on the ornaments. At this point I've decided not to add them, but that could change sometime in the future as I continue to look at the card. Sometimes you just have to go back and give it a little sparkle, you know?
Well, that's it for today. Hope you like the idea. Make time to do some stamping this weekend. It's good for you! Hugs, Sharon
