Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #93 - Use an Ornament on your Christmas card.

Hello Again!! Firstly, I just want to say what a fabulous job you made of your cards with last weeks challenge colours.  It was really tough choosing the winners.

Here is the inspiration image for this weeks Merry Monday challenge.
Create a card with an Ornament/s. Have fun.

 


This weeks challenge definitively tested my metal. I kinda lost my Mojo :-(
The only concrete thought I had was..... I wanted one large decorated ornament. I ended up making three cards. The first two just weren't what I wanted my ornament card to feel like! What ever that means.


This was the last card I made.
I used lots of Lil' Inker Stitched dies for the base and bow (love them), and Spellbinders snowflake and standard dies for the ornament. The old gold mirror board, and the pearlised gold paper, hark back to the cards I made 8 years ago. There's a glitter board layer too.The 'Joy' is Papertrey Ink. The card is finished with a piece of pearl chain for the 'drop' from the bow and a few rhinestones etc.






Here are the first cards.




May your Mojo always be in your favour!! LOL
Happy creating!.

Fantastic cards, Karen and using any of the three for your challenge card would have worked. But your gold card really packs a punch. So detailed and the white is a good backdrop for the richness of the gold.

All three of these are great, but sometimes you just have to keep plugging away until it feels right. The gold card is stunning, and I'm in love with those dies, and the way you layered them is perfect! :)

Oh my goodness Karen!! All of your cards are absolutely stunning! I adore the one you chose, but the others are equally beautiful! I think I have every single die you used on the gold one, so I'm going to pin that prettiness so I can CASE it one day! Amazing work!
