Silver Embossed Ornamental Cheer

Happy Thanksgiving!
I hope everyone is has a wonderful day of food, family and fun.  

I'm looking forward to spending the day with my family.  Before I begin the making of our traditional Thanksgiving dressing, I wanted to post a Christmas card that I created last night!  I combined the colors from Color Throwdown with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  Then I added some silver embossing for the Paper Players!  So here is my card for these three challenges combined!

Sometimes I have a hard time with non-traditional Christmas colors but I was immediately inspired by Color Throwdown's colors.   I used Close To My Heart colors of Pacifica, Olive and Sky with Silver Embossing as my 'grey'.  

My ornament was cut with the Art Philosophy Cricut <Ornament 2>. Then I stamped it with the coordinating stamp from the set Ornamental Cheer (D1520).  I love this set and have so many things I want to try with it.  I just need a little more time!  The ribbon is from Designer Ribbon Blue Collection (Z1385).

Here are my inspirations for this card:


Ornamental Cheer:
The red line around each stamps means that they have a coordinating image on the Art Philosophy (Z1686) Cartridge.   The Dimensional Elements Ornaments (Z1761) coordinate with this set too!


Thanks for stopping by!   Now I'm off to start my cooking!
