Inkspirations Challenge #50 - Contempo Christmas

It's Friday night, so time to play along with another Inkspirations Challenge!  Keesh has a colour challenge for you, & here are the gorgeous colours:-

This week I have made a Christmas card using the SU set Contempo Christmas & the matching ornament punch, kindly lent to me by the lovely Jenni Oliver.  Thanks Jen :) *waving*

I've kept to a really clean, simple design, with lots of white space.  I really like the way it turned out with these non-traditional colours.

The sentiment has been added by way of a tag on each ornament (love this cute little punch!).  I stitched the hanging threads with an iridescent thread over a line of silver gel pen.  The ornaments have been clear embossed to make them shiny & then popped up on dimensionals.  Here's a close up:-

The silver cord is actually hat elastic, which I sealed the ends off with clear nail polish to stop the fibres from fraying.

Make sure you go & check out all the DT Member's creations & have some fun & play along!
