Glad Tidings

Today I had time for one card. I need to knock a few more cards out this weekend so I am ahead of the game when we leave for Boston next week. So I had one more progressive challenge to go in November. Cutting it pretty close here but wanted to get it in for the From the Heart Progressive challenge.





I chose to use lots of bling on this card. The image and sentiment are from the November Stamp of the Month from From the Heart. I paper pieced the ornament with my daughter's paper from her wedding invitations (so I think this will be her Christmas card this year). I colored the image with a mixture of Copics and Bic markers. I inked the sentiment piece with Certainly Celery Stampin' Up! ink. I added some bling that I recently found at Michael's and a piece of ribbon. I used my white gel pen for some faux stitching around the base of the card.
I am entering these challenges:

Hope your weekend is going well. I am not looking forward to going back to work but we only have a four day week this coming week so maybe it won;t be so bad.! Happy Saturday!

Fabulous image Donna, you coloured it beautifully. I love the idea of personalising it for your daughter with a little bit of the paper from her invitations, what a wonderful keepsake.
Cheers,
Beccy
