Perfect Sentiments #10 - A Sparkly Christmas -Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year

Happy Sunday Everyone,
Today's card is for the Perfect Sentiments Challenge this week to make a Christmas card with plenty of Sparkle. I cased this card from Kay Kalthoff, after it was featured on Paper Punch Addiction, I changed it up a bit.  I used Glossy card and dry embossed it, giving it texture and plenty of subtle sheen. Punched out the ornament shape and backed it with the Red Glimmer Card adding a strip of Silver that has been punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch.  I attached some Silver Cord and some Glittery Ribbon.  The Sentiment is stamped on Glossy Card and matted with the Real Red cardstock.

This card was awarded a Perfect Three at the Perfect Sentiments this week.
