Christmas Card Challenges #15

Good Morning friends.  It is Sunday and time for a new challenge at Christmas Card Challenges.  This week we have a photo inspiration for you - blue & silver ornaments.

I love blue and silver together and they make a beautiful Christmas card.  I used 2 ornaments from SU Tags Til Christmas (stamped in Soft Sky ink) and Contempo Christmas (stamped in Marina Mist ink) - sorry, both are retired.  Then I overstamped them with Versamark ink, embossed them with Irridescent Ice embossing powder and punched them out with the matching ornament punch.  I cut the bows from silver foil paper with a Memory Box die.  The pine branch is from SU Watercolor Christmas, stamped several times in Wild Wasabi ink.  The ornaments are mounted with foam tape on DSP from Teresa Collins Studio Gold 6x6 pad.  I stamped the sentiment from SU Greetings of the Season in Marina Mist ink. I also used the Silver Foil paper as a mat and the card base is Marina Mist.

This photo shows how shiny the ornaments are IRL.  They are so pretty.

My teammates over at Christmas Card Challenges have created some fabulous cards.  I hope you will check them out and join us in the challenge.
