The Card Concept #124- Holiday Baubles

It's time for another The Card Concept challenge! I created my card based on the inspiration photo below. First of all, those ornaments are GORGEOUS. I have long lobbied for a "beautiful" tree in our home at the holidays; one with matching d├ęcor and lots of glitz and glamour but alas, I am outvoted every year. We have the traditional kids ornaments, mismatched lights, bare spots where the cats sleeps and a star that is always slightly droopy. That's ok. It's a tree with lots of love. But that won't stop me from dreaming that someday I will get to decorate with beautiful ornaments like below. 

My card this week is clean and layered. I used the colour scheme and ornament theme for my inspiration and substituted silver/pewter for gold...because I love gold. That's all. 

The main panel was created with alcohol inks and brass mixative, then die cut and adhered to an A2 white card base using foam tape. The ornament (from Memory Box but now retired) was die cut from gold shimmer paper and some darker teal for the leaves, glued together and had some Diamond Stickles added to the berries. Finally, the sentiment was heat embossed and adhere with foam tape. All supplies are listed below. 

Head on over to The Card Concept blog to see how the rest of the team was inspired and what styles they used on their cards. Play along with us using any of the styles we highlight...I can't wait to see what you come up with!
