Bah! Humbug! Challenge #4 ---- Baubles

Here it is Wednesday already!  Where do the days go?  But now instead of making Christmas cards in January I have moved into February.  That's because the fabulous blog Bah! Humbug! Challenge is keeping me on track to have at least one Christmas card done per week.  This week the theme is BAUBLE, making a card featuring those pretty ornaments we put on our trees, wreaths and centerpieces.  I had purchased K&Company 3D stickers of ornaments but didn't have a chance to use them yet.  So, here is my card for the theme BAUBLE:

I used shimmery white card stock for the card blank and the layers, along with a piece of gold metallic.  The layout is very simple, but textured with 3 Cuttlebug embossing folders:  Snowflakes, D'vine Swirls, and Swiss Dots.  There are 3 levels of the layers.  This sketch is so easy and yet displays the ornaments in a nice "case".  There are several more ornaments in the package.  Any idea how I am going to use them?  :)

Once again, thank you to Ann, Irene, and Max for starting Bah! Humbug!  You are helping me keep on track, plus I love a bit of Christmas all year long.  Oh, did I mention you are a very fun group of ladies?  Well, you are!

And thank YOU for stopping by today!  Now, hop on over to Bah! Humbug! for some fun.  Before you go, I would love for you to leave a comment.  I'll be hopping by your blogs, too!

Hi Barb,
What fabulous use of your embossing folders. You have layered them beautifully but not detracted at all from the pretty bauble.
