The beautiful ornament stamp and sentiment are from Ornate Ornaments by Waltzingmouse - long retired but still so beautiful!  The die is Heirloom Ornaments from Nestabilities.  I highlighted the sentiment and the scrollwork on the ornament with Clear Glitter Wink of Stella so it sparkles in the sunlight - not so much in the photo!

November Card Chain Challenge Reveal

 Today is the November reveal of cards exchanged over at The Card Chain Challenge Blog.  This month I sent my card to Arlene in CA and I will receive a card from Dee in Kenya!

Each month there are suggestions for sketch, colors, theme and product or technique.  You can use all or you can use just one.   

For my card I used the sketch, the colors and the snowflake theme.

And here's my card!
I cut two pieces of metallic card in blue and gold for the background.  I die cut an oval out of holographic silver metallic paper and layered my die cut snowflake from Poppy Stamps (the die came free with an order!)  over the oval with foam dots.  I added the sentiment which is a Small Talk Sticker over the center of the snowflake.  
Want to join in next month?   Check out all the details over at the Card Chain Challenge blog and find out where in the world you will send your card!
