Designer Challenge

Hello! It's time for another Designer Challenge over at MyCreativeTime. The challenge is to use fabric or stitching on your project. The stitching can be real or faux. And shocker, I used faux stitching. :)
For my card I used the fabulous Warm Holiday Fun set that comes with these cute ornament dies. I cut them out and then white heat embossed them with the patterned stamp that is also in the Warm Holiday Fun  set. I inked them up with picked raspberry, ripe preserves, and peacock feathers distress inks. I love unexpected colors for holiday cards! I then spritzed them with perfect pearls and water.
The sentiment is also from the Warm Holiday Fun set. Oh I forgot to say that I used brushed pewter distress stain for make the silver ornament toppers. That stuff rocks! 

Be sure to pop over to MyCreativeTime to see what the other designers made and to play along!
