Did somebody say bling? {PP115}

Happy Paper Players Sunday, friends!  Anne Marie has a fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for us this week.  Just pick any three options up, down or diagonally to create your project:
You might be able to tell from the title of this post that I went with the top row: Christmas, Sparkle/Bling and Ribbon.
And there's a lot of bling on this one!  I love silver and gold for the Holidays and with this simple color palette and the aid of the Ornament Keepsakes Bundle stamp and coordinating Framelits, this card came together super quick!  The Crumb Cake base is a subtle match to the gold and I topped it with some embossed Very Vanilla (I wish SU didn't retire this folder!)and a flagged banner of Silver Glimmer paper.  More sparkle, anyone?  :-)
These ornaments are so pretty and simple to make with the coordinating Framelits.  I love how the extra little center piece nestles in there and gives it a vintage look.  A small piece of Very Vanilla 1/4" grosgrain ribbon becomes an ornament holder and I added a little knot with a glue dot.
I hope you will join us this week for Anne Marie's fun challenge at The Paper Players before Friday, October 5th at Noon (PST).  Be sure to check out the fabulous projects from the rest of the Design Team ladies, they hit it out of the park!

Wow, what a fabulous Christmas card!! Love the silver and gold ornaments together (and the way you've layered the smaller images over the large ornaments). The strip of sparkle is fab as well!
