Delightful Decorations

For my second Christmas card for my upcoming class, I used this week's color combo at Dynamic Duos and the sketch at iSpy Sketches.  I'm late to the party because I'm only just starting to love Lucky Limeade as a color.  It really pops when used with Basic Black.


I know it doesn't look like it, but the black polka dot DSP is actually three strips - the bakers twine covers up the gaps.

The decorations are clear embossed making them nice and shiny IRL.  There is a rhinestone in the center of the bottom decoration.




Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Delightful Decorations; Petite Pairs
Cardstock:  Basic Black; Lucky Limeade; Whisper White; Neutrals DSP
Ink:  Versamark; Lucky Limeade
Accessories:  Clear EP; Ornament Punch; White Bakers Twine; Basic Rhinestones
