Stamping 411 Challenge #230

Here's another sketch challenge from Stamping 411. I love their ideas and layouts, they are so helpful. Of course I chose to do another Christmas card. I really like this one, I hope you do too.
The ornament was sort of a mistake saved. I had used the vintage wallpaper ef on glossy card stock and then brayered wild wasabi onto the raised part of it. But the color was bad. It turned darker than I wanted it on that glossy paper. So I flipped it over and brayered the wasabi ink on the background and the white is depressed. Then I punched out the ornament shape and filled in the white with glitter and my 2 way glue.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Teeny Tiny wishes
Ink: Rose Red, Wild Wasabi
Paper:Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, Whisper White, White Glossy
Tools: Ornament Punch, Scallop Squares Duo Die & Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper ef, silver cord, sponge, Modern Label punch, Word Window Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, 2 way glue, Paper Piercer, Mat pack,

If you have any questions about how I did anything let me know. I do wish that the glitter and the rhinestones would show up better in the picture though. Thanks for stopping by At Paula's Place.
