Merry Monday #93 and Card Concept #2: A Merry Blingy Christmas!

Hello, friends!  I'm here today with a Christmas card for the current Merry Monday Challenge #93 to make a Christmas card using ornaments.  I'm also playing along with the The Card Concept Challenge #2 to use "texture" on our cards.
I have several ornament stamps in my stash, but really wanted to add blingy ornaments to a Christmas tree.  Using my Hero Arts stamps and lots of pink bling tones, I went to town!  I love the textures of the rhinestones, pearls, and jute ribbon together on kraft!  I believe this card follows the "clean and layered" style (too many embellishments for CAS).




I'm also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge -- it's "Anything Goes with Twine or String" this week!

Another Christmas card for the 2014 stash...nothing like being prepared!

Thanks for stopping by!
Judy
