Never Too Early for Christmas!

This weeks Challenge at Stampin' Royalty is a Picture Inspiration Challenge, and i have to tell you, i was definitely challenged at first, but once i got that spark of inspiration, it all came together!  In the picture, there is so much going on, the color, the texture, the sparkle and shine....i used all those things in this card!  When i was thinking about the supply list on this one, i thought to myself  "what DIDN'T i use!" haha!   Really this doesn't take much explaining, except that i might note that #1, i embossed the first white panel after i die cut it, #2, for the Silver Glimmer Paper, I used the actual die itself and traced the outline of it on the back of the Silver Glimmer Paper, then cut it out to make a mat (using my Craft and Rubber Scissors so as not to ruin my good scissors!)  and #3, I embossed the ornament in Silver, then I actually cut right along the outside of it, then layered it onto a die cut piece of the same shape for a mat.  Other than that, its all about layering and adding the bling!
If you haven't already seen the rest of the samples made by the Goddesses, you really need to see them! they are all so very talented and their projects seriously wow me every week!
