Sparkly Christmas

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a gorgeous inspiration photo for you:
Image may contain: 1 person
Don't you just love those colors?  And all those adorable little ornaments?  Of course, I HAD to make a Christmas card.  This is what I came up with:
 I started by die cutting the white panel, then I used the same die to cut out the circles from brown/bronze, gold, and pale pink glitter paper .  I heat embossed the sentiment with some really sparkly old embossing powder and then adhered the white panel to the dark pink background.  Then I adhered random circles back into the openings for a fun confetti look.  I finished everything off with a bit of ribbon that's been hanging around for a long time!  This next photo shows all the sparkly goodness of this card.
I hope you will play along with us.  Remember that you now have the entire month to play along with the challenges.  I can't wait to see how this picture inspires you.

This is such a creative way to show off the inspiration, Heather. Using those pieces of glitter paper to put back in the circle holes was a brilliant idea. Love this CAS card.
