Christmas Wishes

I can't believe it's been two weeks since I last posted to my blog.   My first card is for this week's 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenge 'Christmas Ornaments' and I made it by following this week sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

Woodware 'Bubble Wreath' stamp
Unknown sentiment stamp (had been a magazine freebie)
Silver mirri card
Blue and red papers
Versafine Majestic Blue ink
Clear embossing powder
Dark blue ribbon
Silver Stickles

I attached blue paper to silver mirri and covered the join with a strip of red paper - this was then attached to the card front.   The Christmas ornaments and sentiment were stamped with Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder.   I glued strips of ribbon from the top of each ornament and fastened them to the back of the card, before layering it to a piece of silver mirri and attaching it to the card front.  The sentiment was layered onto silver mirri and attached to the card front with foam tape.  I used assorted gems and silver Stickles to decorate the ornaments.  To finish, I made small bows and attached them to the to of the ornaments.
