Rudolph Days!

Happy Friday! So glad it's the weekend. I took today off as a vacation day. So I have a 4 day weekend. I've been to the grocery store already. We are waiting on our cistern to be delivered. It was supposed to be here yesterday but something delayed it. So we are hoping today is the day! The weather has been muggy and rainy here. More rain today and tomorrow. So, to make me think of cooler weather I tried out a Christmas card. LOL!

I used a gorgeous Christmas ornament set from Imagine That! Digis by Kris called Elegant Ornaments. I used the sketch from Imagine That! Creative Playground.

The card base is black and the background is a piece of leftover wall paper. I die cut the Elegant Ornament with Spellbinder's Beaded Ovals ad inked the beads with Broken China distress ink. I die cut a sentiment from the same set with Gina Marie Designs Stitched Diamonds and then inked the die cut with Peacock Feathers, Broken China and Cracked Pistachio distress inks to kind of match the wall paper. The black border in the background is a self-adhesive border that I found in my stash. To finish it off I used Basic Grey paper to make the side embellishments punched with a Stampin' Up! tab punch. I really like this one.
I am entering these challenges:

That's it for me today. We'll be heading out to Baby Creek and my Internet will be gone. Hope you all have a marvelous weekend. Happy Memorial Day to my US friends. Please remember all those who have sacrificed everything to keep us free,

How cool you were able to recycle the wallpaper. The design of the w/paper looks very nice with the image. I've never seen this shape with an ornament...most unusual and so pretty. Also love that you've diecut with the splendid beaded oval (which I forget to use). Really very pretty in the serene blues with the black silhouette. TFS & Have a great wkend.

This is a great take on that sketch. The image looks wonderful and the intricate border is perfect with this.
