Hanging Ornaments

Hi friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We just got back from visiting my brother and his wife and I'm sure I've gained 20 pounds since last week! :)

I wanted to share I card I made with a new stamp set I won from a Hero Arts prize package. I'll be entering the card into several challenges and I'll have those linked right after my card and description. Here's my card:
 I love this card! I loved getting the inks out (Colorbox) and heat embossing each ornament. I love the simplicity of the card, too. I used a t-ruler to add the lines to the ornaments and then a few pearls to the snowflakes. The sentiment is also from Hero Arts. I think I remember Jennifer McGuire making a similar card and she used an ombre technique to vary the shades in each ornament. I needed to make several cards quickly so I just stamped and embossed. Super easy card to replicate and you can change up the colors if you get bored (which I do when I make more than one card at a time).

Each challenge site was either a Holiday card or a picture challenge. The two challenge pictures included ornaments so I used that as the inspiration for the card.

Here's the different sites and challenge badges:
Simon Says Stamp! Monday Challenge--Holiday Cards
Curtain Call--see image below "Clearly Christmas"
Festive Friday--see image below
V's Sweet Ideas--Holiday cards
Word Art Wednesday--Anything Goes!

There's still time to play along with most of the challenges here... :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
