Another congrats to Maura! For my card I cased THIS. I loved the layout and shapes (balloons) w/ attached strings so I kept that idea but turned it upside down and made mine ornaments, used different images and different colors.
Donít know about you, but I canít stop hearing that song in my head. I thought it would make the perfect ornament to pair with the Earth Ornament. The verse was stamped w/ white pigment ink and embossed with a shimmery blue velvet embossing powder. The little snowflake was also embossed using a sparkly willow green powder. They were die cut with circle dies and added to the stamped, colored earth ornament. The large panel was also die cut and I used a little bit of my out of the box technique. I also stamped two more of the bow top of the earth ornament, colored and fussy cut them.
The divided back layer is a result of having just sections left of each color, so I attached them together and die cut with a matting basic die.
Congrats again, Maura! Thanks so much for looking! Closeups are on my blog: The Write Stuff

Wow, this is beautiful, Julie. I love how the sentiment and the snowflake are embossed - making them really pop. And it's a small detail but I love how the frame is in 2 different colors!
Thanks again for the honor!
