Embellished Ornaments and the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #432

Welcome to the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #432!  This week we have this color combination for you!


Can I make a confession?  I hope you won't judge me too harshly but the only thing copper I have in my craft room is copper embossing powder.  I thought about quickly trying to order some copper foil paper or some DSP but in the end I decided I would just have to make it work with what I had on hand.  

Embellished Ornaments,

Here's the supplies I used on my card.

Stamps: Embellished Ornaments( ornament and holly) and Star of Light(background swirl and sentiment)

Ink: VersaMark 

Paper: Very Vanilla (card base 4-1/4" x 11"), Night of Navy (3-7/8" x  5-1/8" and  3-3/4" x  3"), Mint Macaron 3-3/4" x 5" and 2" x 3")

Big Shot: Delicate Ornaments Thinlits dies

Embellishments: Mint Macaron 3/8" Sheer Linen Ribbon, Night of Navy Solid Baker's Twine

Other: Copper Embossing Powder

Haha! I read your post and really giggled to myself because I went through the exact same process as you but the only copper thing I had to work with was foil paper! I toyed with making a quick purchase too! I think you made your embossing powder work wonders for you! It really became the star of your card, highlighting the beautiful, delicate ornament! I admire your elegant style!

Ann Lancaster

Well, your "making do" turned out to be a really beautiful card. That's really being creative! Love it.

Joanne James

Well, you may have only had copper embossing powder in your stash but you totally made it work for you Sharon - the embossed elements co-ordinate beautifully and make for an elegant card - and I love the addition of the teeny mint bow!

Wow you really made it work! Such a beautiful card. It doesn't need anything else! Great job!

Thanks Jenny! Sometimes I think it is easier to create when you have limited options. On the other hand, most days I want lots and lots of options!
