Merry Monday #66 and Festive Friday #10



It has been a while since I played along with Merry Monday and this is my first time joining Festive Friday.  I really hope to get back into making Christmas cards again. I will be so happy I did come December.  I inked up my Waltzingmouse Ornate Ornaments for the first time and was just stunned, as always, at how lovely WM stamps stamp.  I used the sketch from Merry Monday and combined it with the challenge at Festive Friday to create a project with a vintage theme. After die cutting, embossing and stamping my ornaments I used an embossing pen to emboss gold on the top of the stamped ornament.

Stamps: Ornate Christmas (Waltzingmouse)
