I have not used my hanging-ornaments Cuttlebug embossing folder before, so I thought this theme of ornaments for 52CCT was a good opportunity to use it. I used the sketch from Freshly Made, the colors from Pals Paper Arts and this was my inspiration.

I had fun with this card, and I'm pleased with how it turned out. I found some old retired CTMH B&Ts that worked so well for the color palette. I translated "gumball green and primrose petals" into CTMHs Topiary (or retired Clover Meadow) and Hollyhock.
I hope you'll come and join us at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown for our ornament challenge!

Materials used:
Cardstock: Topiary, Hollyhock, White Daisy
B&Ts: Animal Cookies, Magic Moments
Stamps: rubber Christmas stamp (not CTMH)
Ink: Hollyhock
Other: Clear Sparkles, Trinkets Wooden Shapes, Christmas Cuttlebug embossing folder set
