Ornament Joy

Whew! I've been laid up with a NASTY cold since last Friday and until today haven't made it out of bed except to eat and use the bathroom, so needless to say I was a bit worried about whether or not I could get this challenge done. Thankfully I woke up feeling a bit better today and this card was on the top of my to do list!

Over at the Jingle Belles blog they teamed up with the Sketchy Thursdays for a group challenge, and its a sketch challenge. Even better, you can link up your card to BOTH sites and be entered for some prizes.  Its like Christmas in February!

Its a nice simple sketch and so I wanted to keep the card simple, nothing overwhelming. I ended up using the Delightful Decorations ornaments and ornament punch. The ornament is popped up with dimensionals as is the sentiment, to give the card a bit of lift.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Delightful Decorations, Small Script, Many Merry Messages(sentiment inside card,not shown)
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Jolly Holiday DSP
Ink: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Ornament Punch, Very Vanilla ribbon, sponge, dimensionals, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Modern Label Punch
