Today's Project

 I am keeping with the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  I wanted some sparkle behind the ornaments so I choose K & Co Christmas Cheer.  The paper has some sparkle to the center of the red.  I continued with the sparkly and used Colorbox Mix'd Media Schoolhouse and embossed with Ranger embossing tinsel red.  The sentiment is from a My Momenta set which I just recently purchased at Michael's.  My husband does not like this sentiment, but I thought it was cute.  I used American Crafts glitter ribbon and some various flowers and brad.  Most of the cards were cut from Bazzil Pomegranate and I chalked the edges with Quick Quotes Powder Puff Maraschino Cherry.  The sentiments are actually stamped on a printed paper also from K & Co, it was some kind of crackle, no wonder it matched the cream in the other papers!

A version with different flowers and different glitter ribbon.  I corner rounded just two corners on each sentiment.  Thanks for hopping by.  Don't forget I am giving away blog candy for those who are a follower and comment every day!
