Anything But A Card Challenges

Today's project is a Christmas tree ornament that I am entering in two blog challenges.  The first challenge is for Hand Stamped Sentiments HSS Anything But A Card Christmas Ornament Challenge #95 and the second challenge is for Stampin' Royalty's Anything But A Card Challenge #100.   With Christmas decorating fully underway at my house, it's a great time to design an ornament using some of the fabulous stamps and designer series paper that Stampin' Up released this fall.  Here is my creation:

Card Stock:  Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze, Night of Navy
DSP:  Frostwood Lodge
Ink: Whisper White (Craft)
Stamp Sets: Tags Till Christmas, Short & Sweet
Accessories:  Silver Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Mini Jingle Bells, Scallop Edge Punch, Ornament Punch, Cherry Cobbler/Whisper White Baker's Twine, Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive,  Two Tags Die(cut 2), Basic Pearls, Silver Thread

Lots of little details, but I love how it turned out! 

Thanks for taking time to visit my blog today.   Enjoy your day!
