La Rue Ornament

Have I told you how much I love the Memory Box dies?  I almost didn't want to part with this card, but it was made for a wonderful lady named Geneva.

I started by cutting a piece of TPC Studio Shimmer White paper using the Debutante frame and then layered another piece using the Vaudeville frame.  The ornament is a combination of the Drop Ornament die with the La Rue.  The pretty pink paper is Chanteuse by Kaisercraft.  A delicate silver bow was made with Brushed Silver paper using the crisp bows set.  Clear rhinestones were added for sparkle.

The inside greeting was stamped in VersaMark and embossed with silver embossing powder and a heat gun.  Snowflakes were stamped in Blushing Bride with iridescent ice embossing powder.

Hope your week is off to a fantastic start!  I'm joining Make It Monday.
