I loved the featured elements of today's cards so much that I decided to keep the design and papers clean and simple.
Since the cards were for a craft show, I used ribbons on a couple of cards but went ribbon-less on most of them. The ribbon-less cards seemed like they needed a little more pizzazz. So, I added the sequin and Stickles to the right of the ornament. When I saw the result, I added these elements to the ribbon-ed cards too.
My one possible regret is that I didn't include a hanger for the ornament. But, I decided against it when I choose to place the ornament as far right as I did. I must say, however, that I'm as pleased as punch with the ornament itself. The look of the gold embossing on that yummy SU paper is FABULOUS!
As my longtime readers know, I consider myself stamping challenged -- which is the inspiration for the name of this blog. So, I was THRILLED at the quality of the stamped branches and sentiments. It was a red-letter stamping day indeed in the menopause room!
In addition to entering this card in the current Jingle Belles Anything Goes link-up, I'm entering these cards into the two following Simon Says Stamp challenges:
- the current Monday Challenge blog's Anything Goes challenge, and
- the current Wednesday Challenge blog's Bling It On challenge.
Dec. 1 - Dec. 21
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
