Sparkle and Shine Purple and Gold

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I've done a shameless CASE of this card by Sheri Gilson.
She is hosting the Christmas in July challenge at Gina K Designs this month.

I used a different background color since the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown
is asking for Purple, Gold & White this week.

I started with a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and heat embossed this 
elegant ornament.  I've heat embossed the sentiment on a snippet of white cardstock.

To draw the eye to the ornament, I sponged the edges with Wilted Violet and 
Elegant Eggplant ink.

The outer layer is white cardstock with gold heat embossed edges.

Thank you Sheri for the awesome inspiration!
