Merry & Bright

Good Wednesday morning Peeps! I really love today's card, I don't generally say that, and lately I have not been "feeling" any card I make, but this one turned out awesome!

I used paper I just got from PTI and it is amazing! I love the metallic blue. You can't really see the shimmer of the paper in the picture, but it is beautiful.

The ornament is made with the reverse masking technique. I cut a circle with my coluzzle is a scrap piece of paper, discarded the circle and used the negative piece. I used some temporary glue to attach the mask to my PTI white card stock. Sponged lightly with night of navy inside the circle and then again putting a heavier concentration of ink closer to the edges. Then I inked up the stamp from SU's Season of Joy, again with night of navy, and stamped it inside the circle, with the mask still attached. Removed the mask and decorated the ornament with silver cord, a small peice of the metallic blue cardstock for the top and then some blue grosgrain ribbon. Lots of layers and a cuttlebugged snowflake BG and the sentiment is from the SU set To you and Yours.

This is how the card looks in my mind:
