Sunday Stamps! #240

It's time for a new challenge at Sunday Stamps! and I decided to pull out the Christmas Gleaming Bundle which is a favorite of my mine from the 2019 Holiday Catalog. It can be found on page 19 of the 2020 Mini Catalog.

I love these ornaments. They are so easy and fun to color.  For this creation, I embossed the ornaments and holly leaves using silver embossing powder.  The holly leaves were colored with Shaded Spruce and Misty Moonlight Stampin' Blends and the ornaments were colored with Highland Heather Stampin' Blends.

I paired my ornaments with the soft pastel colors of the Snowflake Splendor DSP from the Snowflake Splendor Suite. 

My card design follows this weeks sketch challenge created by Heather:
