An Embellished Ornaments Christmas Card

I finally returned the stamp sets and dies back to my sister.  It was fun playing with them.  Some of the sets I struggled with, others the ideas just flowed.  This was one of the sets I had troubles with.  This bulb in particular.  I had cut the bulb out using the dies. I used Cherry Cobbler for the back of the bulb and gold foil for the front.  I affixed the two pieces together and set it aside for a few days.  I had no idea where I was going with it.  Then I had my pearls out for some other project so I thought I would add some pearls to the bulb to dress it up.  I did that and ended up setting it aside for a few more days.  I was just totally lost.  I was once again playing with another project and had a scrap piece of the Mossy Meadow and it ended up behind the bulb. The piece you see on the card was the actual scrap piece.  I liked how it looked behind the bulb.  Though I am thinking it would have looked better using the Cherry Cobbler behind it instead of the Crumb Cake. Oh well, what's done is done!!!

Once I had that strip done the rest was easy.  I had a scrap of the large dots from the "Merry Moments" 6" x 6" stack.  I have used that stack more than I've ever used any of them that I've purchased!!! It's about time!!! LOL  

The words are from the "Petite Pairs" set and I used Old Olive on the scalloped oval.  I added some texture to the background and viola!, it was done!  Finally!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
