Shaped Card for Tuesday Throwdown

This week's Tuesday Throwdown challenge #71 is sponsored by Catherine Pooler, Stampin'Up! demonstrator. Here is her website. She has a prize for the winner.

Our challenge is to make a 'shaped card'. I used my Top Note Die to make my card and
the Stampin'Up! set, Delightful Decorations. The ornament has been clear embossed to give it a sheen. It is hanging with a Flower Soft peel off sticker that resembles a chain. I ran my card through the Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder and used a Martha Stewart drippy goo punch (for icicles) to make the header. It is covered in SU Dazzling Diamonds.

We hope you'll join us with your shaped card this week.

Recipe:
Stamps: Stampin'Up! Delightful Decorations
Paper: SU Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler cardstock,  PTI white cardstock
Accessories: VersaMark, heat embossing tool, Martha Stewart drippy goo punch for icicles, Martha Stewart glue pen, Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, Flower Soft peel off sticker (chain), Stampin'Up! Dazzling Diamonds

WOW look at that sparkle and shine (you know I love my bling!) I am amazed how you used the drippy goo punch for icicles for Christmas. That looks amazing and you get more bang for your buck on the punches. I have to try this. Beautiful work!

Bear Hugs,
