There are a couple challenges that I saw that used ornaments. I immediately thought of an old Stampin Up set that I love so I decided to use it to enter.

The first one is Christmas Card Challenges. They had an optional challenge with a picture of purple and silver ornaments that was beautiful! The other was over at Merry Monday where the challenge was also ornaments.

I also used an old embossing folder that I think is subtle enough to not distract from the intricacies of the ornaments. I struggled with a background color and ended up with Sahara Sand, which is a nice neutral for this card. 

Thanks for stopping by to look! I hope you enjoyed the card.

Confessions of a Paper Hoarder

I admit it. I am a paper hoarder. I have stacks and stacks of beautiful paper that I don't want to use because, well, then it will be gone! It won't be around for me to admire and look at. To touch and think about what I will do with it.

So what does a paper hoarder do when there is a but 3 get one free deal? I'm sure you guessed! We buy more paper!

But this time I decided to use it!

I used the Oh So Eclectic bundle and paper. I needed to make a sympathy card and I thought this would be a pretty pattern and set for what I wanted. You can't tell from the picture but the flowers are popped up and that really makes the card.

I really like this set and the way the flowers look. The picture really doesn't do the it justice! And I'm going to use all the paper in the pack! I am not going to hoard it. Because it is on sale and I can get more!

I haven't entered a challenge lately so I though I would enter this in My Time to Craft. Thanks for stopping by to look.
