Christmas Joy

I am enjoying this new Delightful Decorations from SU's Holiday mini catalog, especially because it has a coordinating punch! I actually ordered this set thinking it would be perfect when I wrap gifts (on Christmas eve) and run out of tags like I inevitably do! But I didn't realize how versatile it would be for cards and scrapbook pages as well until I started playing with it.

This time I embossed the ornament in Real Red then watercolored in the swirls with some Old olive so it would match the fabulous new ribbon called Sleighbells (also from the Holiday Mini). The flourishes from Baroque Motif are embossed in gold on a vanilla card base. The bottom strip of DSP is from the new pack called Christmas Cocoa. Finally, I finished it off with some gold elastic cord (also in the Holiday Mini).

Do you like this layout? It is from another Fall-to-Layout on the Clean & Simple blog that I mentioned yesterday.

Have a great day!
