Ornate Ornaments



I've had this stamp set for ages and finally decided to use it. The making of this card took a lot of thought and so much time to make, but I'm pleased with the finished product.

I used a sketch from Just Us Girls Challenge week 10. for inspiration. This is such a wonderful sketch and has so many possibilities. I know I'll come back to this one again.

Stamp set is from Close to my Heart and is called Ornate Ornaments. This set is also available in French and Spanish.

The colors of cardstock are Cranberry and New England Ivy.

I used Copic Markers to color the ornaments.
Gold red and green Glitter was added to the ornaments
