Pals Paper Arts Inspiration Challenge

This photo is the inspiration challenge hosted by Pals Paper Arts this week:

Her bodice made me think of velvet.  Therefore, I used this Flocked Accent Poinsettia designer paper for my punched ornament, as well as for the background on my Christmas card.  I punched the ornament three times out of this beautiful paper and stacked them together with dimensionals.

The sentiment circle is also popped up on dimensionals.  The cord is actually silver, but I colored it with a Copic marker to fit in with my color scheme.

Supplies I used include:
Stamps:  Delightful Decorations
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Black, Little Yellow Bicycle designer paper
Ink:  Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive
Accessories:  Stampin' Up ornament punch, zig zag border punch, 3/4" circle punch, dimensionals, silver cord, Cardinal Red Copic marker
