Merry and Bright Ornaments



Happy Friday, Bleeps! I'm back with a rather unusual holiday color palette! I was inspired by those Christmas trees or wrapping papers with bright colors. I had to rearrange the color inspiration image to fit the color swatches together. The only one I'm missing is white, but it's in the text so that counts too! I appreciate your feedback and comments! If you have more, please ask and I'll respond in the comments section, unless you provide your e-mail!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend! We're supposed to get a nice snow storm in the DC area!!

  4. Add glossy accents to create a shine effect. Let dry.

How in the world did you keep your cardstock from curling up after you applied the glossy accents? This card is a beauty-so striking!

What fun colors! And amazingly, you've made them play together in the sandbox so well....absolutely no fighting! Also really like how the ornaments 'hang' & the flourishes escaping from underneath them! :>
