Ornament Card

I decided to try my hand at this weeks Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge.  I like how the card came out, however, I have heard so much about Glimmer Mist so I picked some up today.  When I sprayed it on the card it left droplet marks on the paper and smeared the ink on my sentiment.  I used Cloud 9 pattern paper and Recollections card stock.  Using some of the fun little elements that come with Waltzing Mouse Stamps, I made my own pattern for the ornaments (except the text one, I used an Inkadoo stamp).  I stamped it with Pear Pizzaz and Rose Red inks, then embossed it using Sparkle powder.  The Stampin Up ornament punch gave the great shape.  Then I used silver Stickles to define the tops. 

After cutting my paper I hand drew a rectangle reminiscent of the new Frame it stamp set from Waltzing Mouse, using a black marker.  Then I stamped the Stampabilities sentiment at the bottom and underlined it with another Waltzing Mouse stamp.

Next, I figured out where I wanted the ornaments placed within the rectangle and made “ornament hangers” with the silver Stickles.  Finally, I popped the ornaments up with dimensionals.  And, as I mentioned above, sprayed the card with Glimmer Mist.

I hope you like it.

Thanks for taking the time to have a look.  Comments are always appreciated!
