Merry and Bright

Well, due to internet issues, I missed the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge deadline, but am able to use this card for both Simon's Monday and Wednesday challenges. 

I didn't come up with an idea until this morning and as usual working last minute never goes as smoothly as it is suppose to.  

I used Stampin' Up's Holiday ornaments to cut out the 3 ornaments from a dark blue speckled paper I get from a local stamp store.  I then used Memory Box Stars Starry Nights stencil with embossing paste mixed with silver glitter stickles and let that dry.  I also sprayed a piece of white card stock with Distress Spray Stain in Brushed Pewter and after it dried, I cut out Merry and Bright with Tim Holtz's new dies for Christmas #660058.  I used a piece of SU's Bashful Blue card stock and stamped dots all over it with Encore's Ultimate Metallic Silver ink.  I added silver cording to the back of the ornaments and put everything together on the card.  

Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out all the beautiful cards made over at Simon Monday Challenge and Simon Wednesday Challenge.
