Ornamental Sparkle

I shall post the results of my poll about "Following" & the conclusions I have come to once Christmas is over. In the meantime I had two cards left to make & have just managed to get these done ready for delivery by hand on Christmas Eve.

Although it took a while to work out how to "hang" the ornaments I was very pleased with the result. Another aspect that quite delighted me was the way the "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year" wording worked out on the patterned paper for the inside of the card.

These baubles have made an elegant card and I like the neat paper piercing on the scallop. I reckon these stamps might just have to join my wish list in readiness for next year.

Paula you leave no stone unturned when you create your masterpieces. I was especially drawn to the curved dimension added to these embossed and sparkled baubles.
