Bright Blue Ornaments

Here's a quick and simple Christmas card idea. This card features QKR Stampede's  digi15706 Christmas Border. It's a perfect image to feature in a frame cut and embossed with Spellbinder rectangles.

I colored the ornaments with Copics and added a bit of bling with micro-fine glitter (which is hard to see here). I used the Scor-Pall to add some detail toward the bottom of the card. A couple strips of scrap ribbon (which I knew I should save for a reason - LOL) add a further bit of sparkle. One of the new Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two fames the silver heat embossed sentiment and completes the card.

Here's a tip: Since this is basically a one layer card, plan the trimming of your image carefully. You want it to be large enough to cover the edges of the blue card stock, when you look at the inside of the card. Does anyone have any good ideas for how to decorate the back of that panel which is visible on the inside?
