I love the fresh color combination at the Color Throwdown
. Of course for me, anything with aqua is fabulous. I kept the card light and clean.
I think the fun stenciled background (done with embossing paste) works perfectly with the sentiment on the ornament. I was surprised to discover that I have no gold cord which is what I wanted to use to hang it. So I cut off a very thin slice of gold shimmer paper. The stamp set had bows, but they required stamping and I wanted it to match the cord, so I found this tiny little bow in a different set.
Thank you to Color Throwdown for the inspiration.
