Blue Ornament

This week's challenge at Merry Monday is to use an ornament or ornaments on your Christmas card.  This challenge came through at a good time, because I'd just dipped my toe into the digi stamp pool and bought a few digi stamps - one of which was an ornament.  






And here's the card I made.



As well as the digi stamp, I also bought some digi paper.  In fact, I was commenting on a Merry Monday challenge entrant, Janet Kay Bailey and I saw the paper that she used and immediately went to the link in her blog and bought pretty much the whole range!  This paper has very subtle snowflakes on it.

I used a sketch from Retro Sketches from a couple of months ago, which I love and will be sure to use again.  

Aren't the rest of the DT samples fantastic?  If you haven't checked them out, head on over and give the challenge a go.  It's never too early to start on your Christmas cards :)

Thanks for looking.

Products used:

Stamps:  Signature Christmas (PTI), Squigglefly Digi Stamp
Ink:  Basic Black
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Lucky Limeade, Pacific Point, Blue Christmas (Raspberry Road Designs digi paper)
Accessories:  Copic Markers, Silhouette Cameo

Your card caught my eye when I looked over at Merry Monday to see what the next challenge is. It is simply stunning. Great colors and that paper! How fun. I'm still deciding between stamped ornaments or die cut ones.... decisions, decisions!
