The Card Concept: Ornate Ornaments

As the Christmas season fast approaches, I'm excited to bring you some 
inspiration along with The Card Concept's Challenge: Ornate Ornaments.

Isn't this photo gorgeous? The aquas and snowy white, all the shiny 
brights are just too wonderful.

I created a shaker card full of mini ornaments (Poppystamps) and a mix of sequins. 
The slim aqua frame is from Poppystamps too. 
It had a snowflake attached, I simply cut it out to enlarge my window.

I cut out the frame 5 times and glued them together to allow the ornaments 
to shake and move about.

The 'Merry' is part of Poppy's Merry Christmas Flourish die, cut apart, 
and I added 2 ornaments to the flourish ends.

I just can't leave backgrounds plain, apparently not in my DNA, (Ha!) so 
I added PTI's Marque frame, which seemed to fit perfectly behind my 
shaker. (Love it when that happens!) And I would say my card is 
Blinged Classy and Elegant style. 

With a photo like this weeks inspiration, I can't wait to see what you all
create! Be sure and check out the other designers' inspiration too.
