Verve Meets WSC

I am a very lucky girl.
Well, I don't necessarily believe in luck so I am a very blessed girl!
I won the entire Verve November release.
SO many stamps.... so little time. I'll be making some of my Christmas cards with them though. They're very pretty.
I had a little bit of time to stamp yesterday and of course went straight to Beate's blog to see her weekend sketch. I picked up the Verve set "Ornamental Christmas" and this card came together in a flash!

I'll be using this sketch again for sure. Thanks, Beate!
The ornament tops were stamped on brushed gold paper and cut out. Then I simply used the opposite side for the actual image. Crystal Effects was added and of course a little glitter. There's lots of dimension here.
That pretty snowflake embellishment was a great find recently. I know I am going to wish I had more when these are gone. They're from K & Company. I replaced the matching center brad with one of my own in a red hue. You can't see well in the picture, but it's set on a 1" punch that is backed with a scalloped 1" punch in brushed gold. The papers I used here were all from a paper pad I got at Hobby Lobby recently- "Greetings of the Season". You'll be seeing those again! Can you believe I opened this Handsome Hunter pad today for the first time?And I've had it since it came out. Geeesh.
Thanks for visiting today!
Hope you're having a great and relaxing weekend!
