Time to Play

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas Card Challenges and you
know what that means? That means it's time to get out your supplies
and come play with us!
Check out the fun photo below that we have for you this week. 
I was inspired by the ornaments but I went non-traditional with 
the colors.

I embossed an old favorite of mine with black embossing powder onto
some watercolor cardstock. After I heat set it I got out some distress inks
and colored the ornaments in and added some shading. A simple sentiment,
some black matting and then it was ready to place onto a colored card base

Check out what the rest of the Design Team has come up with to 
inspire you. I hope you'll play along.

Happy Stampin'
