Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Golden Embellished Ornaments


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

You will see from my previous blog post that I CASE’d a fellow CTC Design Team member and this next card is actually inspired by one of the layouts of her cards as well...as I trawled through her blog for ideas, I was very much inspired! You can see it here.

So much gold....I narrowly scraped in with the black element....a touch of black glimmer paper on the top of the ornament on the left. :)

Here are our colours this week:
