Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 88! Christmas Blessings!

It is time for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 88!  This week is all about a Blue, Blue Christmas!  We are challenging you to make Christmas cards in hues of blues!    I am using ODBD Ornaments stamp set which is made to coordinate with the Spellbinder's Heirloom Ornaments die cuts.   

For my card, I stamped the smaller of the ornaments that come in the set with versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder onto white and enchanted evening cardstocks.  I die cut both with the Spellbinder's Heirloom Ornament die cut.  I stamped the sentiment using versamark.  I silver embossed.  I used my Score-Pal to create a border frame for my sentiment.  I used a snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder for the top portion.  I finished my card with matching satin ribbon, silver wire cording, and silver pearls.

My card is for a few other blog challenges, too!
