Merry Monday Christmas Challenge - Vintage Ornaments

Can you believe it's almost December! I hope you're not scrambling to make your Christmas / Holiday cards... but if you are, there's lots of challenges that will give your creativity a little kick start. Today I'm playing along with the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge!

I love the non traditional colors for the challenge this time! You're asked to use green, blue and white silver or vellum on your project. Here's what I made!

I was inspired by the shiny ornaments in the inspiration photo! I'm using Reverse Confetti Vintage Ornaments stamped in Island Blue and Parakeet.

I stamped the sentiment from Sentimental Christmas directly on the pattern paper. I mixed papers from two different pads - the blue and type print are from Warm Heart, the lime is from Cheerful and Kind.

I added lots of silver accents.. the hangers for the ornaments are stamped in Silver Delicata ink. The Star Garland and bitty stars (from the Stars Pretty Panel) are cut from silver glitter paper.

Does this look like a challenge you want to try? Check it out here at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge! Have a great day!

Very nice! So many cool things about your card. The background is great and I like the darker blue behind those fun ornaments. I also really like the silver garland and little stars all over.
