Red Ornament

Hello everyone!  If you are looking for the Blog Candy post, please scroll down several posts.  Contest ends soon!

Earlier this afternoon I posted a similar card to this one:

I put them in two posts because I want to enter each in different challenges.
This version is more elegant, the other more cute and whimsical (see this post).  I colored an ornament from Flourishes' All That Glitters using Copic markers.  I also added touches of gold with my new Smooch Accent Ink.  Neat stuff!  It has a superfine brush tip to add the gold just where you want it. 

I kept the wreath made of Rose Leaf punched leaves, but adorned it with bling instead of twine. 


Challenges:

I really didn't need to make any more Christmas cards, but they're just so much fun to make I kept going!  Now I'm "ahead" for next year.

Thanks for joining me once again today.
