Holly and Ornament--Deck the Halls

You must know by now what Friday means to me....another card for Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. It is none other than Joan Ervin. I think everyone on SCS knows who that is..the lady who teaches us so many new techniques. I didn't have much time so I went CAS when I cased this card. Do you see any resemblance? Ha I did try to keep the sketch, but changed the stamps and die cuts. I cut out my ornament two times, one green for the bottom and the red for top. I embossed with VersaMark and clear embossing powder to give some radiance to the ornament.

I also entered my card into the Free for All challenge on SCS. The challenge is to make a card that reflects something about the person for whom you're making it. This could be their hobby, favorite color, something they collect, and so on. My sister collects Christmas ornaments (surely in the thousands) :-)..though, I am a huge collector, also...so this card will be for her...one more ornament.
That's about it for me for this week. Have a great weekend. See you Monday.

Recipe:
Stamps: Sweet Stamps-Holly Branch, Hot Off the Press-Christmas Words (sentiment)
Paper: PTI white cardstock, SU Always Artichoke cs, and red from Hobby Lobby
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
