'tis the Season 61

Mona Pendleton | Friday, November 25, 2011 @ 8:23 AM | ,

Hi there! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving Day celebration! It's been way too long since I've had the opportunity to play along with the PTI Blog Hop. Since I had the day off from work and I'm not a Black Friday shopper, I joined in the fun!
This month, Nichole is challenging all to refer to the gorgeous photo shown below for inspiration:
I pulled out Vintage Ornaments and made this card:
 I stamped the beautiful ornament using red ink first followed with the pretty decorative trim using VersaMark, embossed with fine white embossing powder then finished it off with a coat of glitter. The coordinating dies are on my wish list so not having them, I hand cut the ornament then layered on top of a doily from the Doily Details Collection:
 For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Card Patterns Sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting today! Off to hop along for some Holiday inspiration! Be Sweet!
