Ombre Christmas Card



Hi everyone!

I haven't played along over at Merry Monday for awhile, so I thought I'd get out some Christmas stamps and join in on the fun!
And I did have a lot of fun using my Hero Arts Ombre ink pad!
First I made a background with the pad itself, then I stamped the sentiment," O Holy Night" from Stampabilities on a stitched rounded tag from Lil Inker. It's all backed on a stitched Lil inker rectangle. I added some Coastal Cabana twine from Stampin Up, and also a few sequins.





And since I used Ombre ink pad, it also qualifies for the challenge at Virginia's View:



And also for Friday Mashup:



Have a great day!
