Merry Monday Elegance

This is theme week at Merry Monday.  And the theme is ELEGANCE.

The Ornament Keepsakes set always makes me think of elegance especially when I add some embossing.

After stamping the ornament in Cherry Cobbler, I smacked it with the VersaMark pad and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.  It gives it a shine like a glass ornament.

The rest of the design team has some gorgeously elegant cards to share too.  I hope you'll pay them a visit.

Bonnie your card is lovely, the ornament is beautiful made with Cherry Cobbler and clear embossed, and offset by the dry embossing.
