Embellished Ornaments Gifts Card

It's funny how some of the best things happen unexpectedly!
I had just returned from a last minute week long trip, and needed to come up with the Stampin' Royalty challenge right away, as i was too busy while i was gone to get it done, but when i saw this picture inspiration, it luckily didn't take me long to come up with a design! maybe it was the time crunch pressure? haha...
I was inspired by the gifts in the main part of the picture... so pretty! 
I liked making this card because i was able to use SCRAPS!! woohoo!! that always makes me happy!
It's pretty straight forward, i used the Holly Berry Builder Punch for the bows, and just layered everything. I think i'm gonna make a lot more to send out for Christmas!

Cookie Cutter Christmas, Tin of Tags, Glitter Card

Here is my card for the All That Glitters Challenge at Stampin' Royalty this week!

This card took me entirely too long to figure out haha.... But i do like the end result.

We actually had a little challenge for our local stamping group, where we were all given the same 3 items (in this case, the stamped Eskimo image, the rope twine, and a strip of Designer Series Paper) and we were to take it home and create something with it, then share a picture on our group page.

I tried several different versions, and after a few hours, arrived at this card.
I typically would have shied away from these colors and would never have thought to use Delightful Dijon in a Christmas card, but behold! Stranger things have happened, i suppose!

I also incorporated Glitter for the Stampin' Royalty Challenge. There is glitter on his coat, and also highlighting the snowflake background stamping. Hard to see it in this photo, but looks really nice in person :o)

Ink - Delightful Dijon
