Circle Christmas Card

When I saw Angel's sketch for today -- to make a Circular Card -- I knew just what I wanted to do... an Ornament card! One problem. I don't have any pine bough stamps. Think, think, think. Ah Hah! The tree from Lovely as a Tree! It worked great. I inked it up with Artichoke ink and stamped it a number of times for depth. The bow and ornament from Joy were inked up with markers and cut out seperately. I thought about using dimensionals, but it just didn't look right today. The saying - from Seasons of Joy - was inked up with markers, sponged with Moss and punched out with my Oval punch. The DP is from last year's Holiday Thyme and the ribbon... some more of my lovely wide organdy.

Try this sketch if you have time today! Angel's even offering a RAK for it!! :)
