Dynamic Duos #79/Seize the Sketch #8


I am entering this card in both the Dynamic Duos #79 (Black Tie Week) Black & Silver with the option of Christmas, and the Seize the Sketch #8 challenges this week.  I usually have trouble combining challenges, but these two seemed meant for each other.  I am using Gina K. Designs new Season's Greetings stamp set.  I love, love, love this ornament stamp and the Merry Christmas greeting!  This card is very simple.  I used the Swiss Dot folder from Cuttlebug for the embossing on the gray panel & the greeting panel.  I stamped the ornament using Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Silver and added some gray & white pearls.  I used Spellbinders classic circles and scalloped circles dies to make my cuts.  The little silver bow is from Offray.
