CC243 - Ornament Flourish Digi

I made this card using the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge #243 - Neutrals with a POP. Background papers need to be neutral but the image and embellies need to POP! I've been wanting to do a card with this Ornament Flourish Digi that I have yet to use! Today was the day!

I used my favorite Paper Tole Technique. As you can see too, I used lots of Gold Stickles on the background flourish. I also used Silver Stickles on the little top hanger of the ornament. I colored with Copics R27 and just layered up the color until it was rich and yummy!

If you look closely, I also used Perfect Pearls Forever Red in the Jewel Tones Set. It adds just a beautiful, light sheen to the ornament. I also brought my sewing machine home last night! Yeah! Now that I've used it ...I don't know how it was even running before! It now has a hum when before it was more of a grrrind. LOL! I'm just happy to be back in business again! :)
Have a wonderful day!
