Still Inspired

As I mentioned yesterday, Joy's card really inspired me and I landed up make a few different ones using the same basic design.  Here is another:

Paper: Cardstock (PTI); Designer Paper (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Tea Dye & Victorian Velvet distress ink; Versafine Onyx Black; Copic markers
Stamps: PTI
Other: PTI die; gems; dimensional squares

The main panel was inked with distress inks lightly around the borders for depth and then adhered to the notecard using dimensional squares.  The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed.  And the pattern on the ornament was stamped with Victorian Velvet distress ink and I also added a few gems to the design with a little PTI bow at the top.

It's lovely to see some new followers, thank you!  We are back into the 60's here today, cold one day, warm the next!

I hope your day has got off to a good start!  I am off to finish the gift wrapping and to see if it all fits into my suitcases!
