SCS Sketch challenge #202

This card is for today's sketch challenge over on SCS. I flipped the layout to accommodate my hanging ornament. I did mention I am so in love with Verve's new set Ornament Christmas?? Hope you don't get tired of seeing these, cause I have another to share tomorrow!!

I embossed the ornament, cap and wire with Gold EP and watercolored the ornament and strips with Sahara Sand and Baroque Burgundy. I cut out the cap and ornaments and glued them to the paper, for a tiny bit of dimension. I stamped the tree branches in black and went over them with a copic marker. I got this idea from Julee's amazing card. The gold cardstock is retired from Creative Memories. The gold cord, brads and organdy ribbon are all from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts.

Card Deets:
Stamps: ornamental christmas
Paper: white, gold, cranberry crisp, wassail
Ink: versamark, black
Accessories: gold EP, copic markers for tree branch, fiji watercolor brush, gold cord, organdy and brads
