Silver Ornament ~ Merry Monday 134 & NAC115

This card is for Merry Monday 134, which challenges us to use an ornament and silver and blue colors.  I also used the sketch from Nacho Average Challenge 115.

I flipped the sketch around on it's side.  
For the blue colors, I went with Island Indigo and Pool Party DSP from the last years Winter Frost pack. Island Indigo and Pool Party sound more summery than winter, LOL!
I looked around to see what I had for ornament stamps and the only thing I could come up with was the little one that comes in the Ornamental Pine set.  I embossed it with silver embossing powder and hung it from some Smokey Slate ribbon with a Frosted Finish embellishment at the top.  I used a sentiment from More Merry Messages that I thought went perfect with an ornament card. 

Here's a list of all my supplies....
Stamps: Ornamental Pine, More Merry Messages
Ink: Island Indigo, Versamark
Paper: Island Indigo, Winter Frost DSP, White, Silver Glimmer
Accessories: Silver EP, Frosted Finishes, Smokey Slate 1/4" ribbon, Scallop Border punch

Thanks for taking a peek!
