Merry Monday #40

Happy Monday!  It's Monday and that means there's a new challenge sketch up at Merry Monday~ Check it out HERE! So many beautiful creations!

The sketch:

 And here's my creation:

 I have to say this was not my original plan for this card.  I played with the inside of the ornament for a while and finally ended up with this cute sentiment.  My original plan was to cut out '25' on my circut but I just couldn't make the colors come together and ended up not happy with the result.  But, I'm happy with how this card turned out.  I love the small Merry Christmas Sentiment at the bottom and of course the bling :)  Since the cardstock is a shimmery chocolate, I created a spot on the inside of the card to add a personal message.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good night!  ~ Kim
