Quick Christmas card

I completely forgot to do my post last night.  I had my class at Paper Pickle, and ended up having 15 ladies.  I must say it went better than I thought.  Out of the 15,  I had 4 regulars and all the rest 'newbies'. Needless to say I didn't get home until 9:40, had a cup of tea the hit the pillow! Totally exhausted!! Overall everyone's card's turned out fantastic.

So I'm posting a quick card for today, since I don't have much time before heading off to work.
Remember the cards I posted on Sunday (you can see them  here) - they were ornament cards - well I have been playing around with one of Stamping Bella's ornaments for the last few weeks, everything I tried I garbaged, but then on the weekend, it came to me, 'case' my cards that I posted on Sunday.  So that's what I did, and like the outcome!

I used Ornament with Holly for my stamp along with season's greetings for the senitment.  I used an Crafty's Too embossing folder for the background layer.
I embossed the ornament in gold and well as the senitment.

For the ornament I coloured the leaves and berries with copics, then applied a light layer of glue using my glue pen and rubbed some glitter ritz on them to give it some sparkle. Popped the ornament up on the card, and finsihed off with some gold shiffon ribbon.

Another quick and easy card ladies - great for mass producing!!

Also, I heard that Paulabella is having a giveaway!! Yep, you can read it over here on her blog.  The rules are simple - so hop over to Paula's blog and read all about it.

Have a wonderful day - see you back here on friday for our sketch challenge - do you have yours done yet? If not you still have time.  Love to see you participate!

ditto on Cath! this is GORJUS!!!!!! and oh poor Cath doesn't have a clue that if there is a punch, folder, die out there you can also probably find it in your room! and you never fail to use just the right one.
