Glittered Ornaments

Hello everyone,

From the moment I saw the inspiration photo for yesterday's Colour Create Challenge, I knew I was going to make a card. It was just too beautiful to resist and so much fun to create.

The card base is from Strathmore. The horizontal background strips are Close To My Heart Ocean and Purple Pansy both of which were textured with Cuttlebug's D'vine Swirl. The background ornament is Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornament cut in Stampin' Up Whisper White, glittered with Glitter Ritz Cool Microfine Glitter and textured with Cuttlebug's D'vine Swirl. The remaining ornaments and dots are Ocean and Purple Pansy glittered in the same fashion as the background ornament and layered with Peel Off's Xmas Bulbs. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Short & Sweet.

I love everything about this card. The ornaments, the colours, the glitter, the layers. I find all of these elements extremely appealing and they came together so very beautifully. This just might be another keeper for me.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
