Golden Ornament

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

We are having a taste of Fall here in central NC.
And that means that Christmas is right around the corner!

Time to "get 'em done"!

I used a retired embossing folder and die for the pine branches here, coloring both
with a sponge dauber and two shades of green ink.

My favorite ornament was die cut and a glittery snowflake popped on top
adds some sparkle to the shine.

CAS Christmas - Sparkle and/or Shine: I have both here.

It's so lovely, Bonnie! Yes, we need a little Christmas - every day of the year! Your sparkle and shine remind me I'm way behind!

Love that ornament! That seafoam color is gorgeous! I have never successfully sponged over embossing without a mess but I sure do love the way that looks. Very tasteful placement of your sentiment too!

P.S. Don't forget about our embossing challenge ... this would fit perfectly and we have a new challenge that began today ... here's the link: Can You Handle the Pressure. I hope you'll come share this beautiful inspiration with us.

The snowflake inside the ornament is so pretty and shiny! Love your card Bonnie. Yes, Christmas will be here pretty quick now.

What better way to show off that gorgeous gold ornament than hanging it on pine branches. So beautiful, Bonnie.

Fall is here too and I can't believe how fast this year has gone. Your ornament is just gorgeous and looks wonderful nestled among the pine branches.

Love your embossed and die cut pine boughs for the background of your Stunning die cut ornament with the glittery die cut snowflake...Wow! You are the Queen of die cut card designs, Bonnie. Love and Hugs..Nancy

Leslie Miller said...

Yes, it's time and I'm trying. Trouble is I keep throwing out some I made earlier because now I don't like them. I doubt you have any of those because this is a lovely example of how gorgeous all of your Christmas cards are. Love the embossed background with the additional branch die cut. The ornament is exquisite!

Lisa Elton said...

Beautiful take on the Peace on Earth mood board. Love those soft coloured pine branches and the contrast with the rich gold of the ornament. I'm wearing two different Design Team hats here - thanks so much for joining in with Peace on Earth and with CAS Christmas.

This is stunning, Bonnie! There are a lot of sparkly and shiny elements on this card, and I especially love the sparkly snowflake on the shiny gold ornament! The coordinated light greens of the pine branches and the matte are so pretty. I'm always happy to see your cards in the CAS Christmas gallery, my friend!
