Happy Monday all!! I hope you all had a great weekend!! The weather was gorgeous here...not to hot and not too cool.  Perfect!! We had a great weekend catching up around the house outside and having campfires at night.

Today I would like to share a card I made using the sketch at Splitcoast Stampers this past week.  The sketch looked so unique and beautiful.  

The sketch included three circles and a horizontal strip.  My circles are ornaments. I decided to make an elegant card using these ornaments ( Custom Fancy Ornament Die Set ) just released by ODBD and the sentiment from Holly Wreath . The sentiment tag is cut and mounted using the Antique labels and Borders Die 

The ornaments are die cut out of aqua glitter paper, silver foil cardstock, and a piece of vellum embossed with holographic embossing powder and adhered to gold cardstock.

The bottom border is created with the Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders 1 die.

The background is Very Vanilla paper embossed with a Stampin Up Poinsettia 
Embossing folder.

Challenges I am entering my creation in:
Timeless Tuesdays #287--make a good impression (use dry embossing)
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge #141--cut it out
Loves Rubberstamps--have a sentiment on the front

Thanks for stopping by!!
May God Bless you!!
