Hello, friends!! I hope you are all enjoying the week and all is well!!  Time certainly seems to be fleeting and fall is definitely here, you can just feel it in the air and the mornings are colder and darker!!

Today I am popping it to share another card that I made for the inspiration challenge at ODBD....a Christmas card that I really had a fun time creating with my ODBD ornament stamps and dies.

Our Daily Bread Designs, Elegant Embellishments, Christmas Carols, Snowflake background; ODBD Dies: Elegant Embellishments, Flourished Star Pattern, Elegant Ovals, Stitched Ovals, Ovals, Splendorous Stars, Designed by Chris Olsen

Our Daily Bread Designs Card Recipe:
Stamps: Elegant Embellishments, Christmas Carols, Snowflake background
Dies: Elegant Embellishments, Flourished Star Pattern, Elegant Ovals, Stitched Ovals, Ovals, Splendorous Stars

This card is just full of glimmer and sparkle as the ornaments are embossed in gold or holographic glitter and then the embossing resist technique was used. They are created using the Elegant Embellishments stamps and  Elegant Embellishments dies. The white background is cut from glitter paper using the Flourished Star Pattern and just sparkles in real life.  I just love the blue, gold and white together. The gold behind the Flourished star pattern is dry embossed as well.

Here is the inspiration photo

For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:
Julie, Robin, Diana, and Paula. Chris

So shiny and sparkly! I love it. Wish I could see it in real life - like Robin and Julie said - it's probably even more beautiful.

This is bright, beautiful, elegant and sparkly! Perfect for the Christmas season, Chris!!! The pale blue against the gold and white is stunning! I also love how you have used the stamps and dies together with snowflake over snowflake! The ornament hanging by the pearls is so nice too!

Oh, Chris, this is so gorgeous and sparkly, and I just love it! It reminds me of snow up north! I love the gold and the sparkle of the ornaments in the holographic glitter. And, yes, I do love the blue, gold, and white together! Wow, this is a showstopper! Hugs!
