When I saw this inspiration photo that Lesley chose for the Merry Monday challenge this week, I oohed and aahed!
Take a peek
I went more toward the turquoise because that's how it looked on my computer.
It's funny how the picture sticks with me much longer than the words!
Here's my card.
Then I did this one.
I can't decide which one I like best so I'll share both.
The little tags are a CASE from Kristie. She had added some little tags on my Christmas card. Loved that little detail that made a beautiful card extra special.
The tree was stamped with Encore Silver and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
I inked the "balls" with VersaMark then the Tempting Turquoise and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
A little hint. No matter whether I embossed the tree or the balls first, the balls kind of drifted to the background. I found the I could scrape off the silver embossing on top of the balls to let them shine through a bit more. I actually found that out quite by accident. That's a whole 'nother story!
