'Tis the season to shine - CCC #8

Happy Sunday to you!  It's time for Christmas Card Challenges.

I love my card for this week!  It was fun to make and (after a few ruined tries!) it turned out great IMHO. ;) 

My first into-the-garbage try was because I didn't place the ornaments in the right place.  Duh!!  Next, I had a problem with the string on the middle ornament because the stamp wasn't quite long enough with this placement.  I used my Mini MISTI so I could line it up perfectly to lengthen it but forgot to clean the stamp before setting it down... my finger bumped it so it left a little ink in the wrong place.  Duh again!!  The next one was coming along well, but I didn't realize I had ink on my finger until I noticed a black blob in the middle.  More grrrr than duh!  Finally, I got the strings placed well and added the ornaments.  Using the Mini MISTI was great because I could stamp with Versamark, reink, and stamp again to be assured of a nice full heat emboss...

It's so beautiful IRL!!

Our optional prompt for this week's challenge is a photo challenge.  We'd love to see how this pic inspires you... I was inspired by the gold on white.  {Remember any Christmas/winter holiday card works, too.}

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!
