"O" Means Ornament and Oval Card Shape

     Today we're doing the letter "O" as the prompt at Beccy's Place for the 30 Days of Christmas cards.  I found one of Beccy's fabulous Ornaments and used it.  It colored up beautifully.

Color combo came from My Favorite Things.

     I colored with ProMarkers, and the parts which look gold are actually colored with an Olive green marker.  The two narrow stripes bordering the holly are done with Onyx glitter.

     I had already decided on a shaped card so I dug out one of my Oval dies from QuicKutz and used it to cut the card shape.  I had to plan ahead for this card because I wanted it to be a One layer card so I had to put the Ornament at the bottom of the CS sheet in order to have the fold at the top to make a tent card.  This is my first ever Oval card but I'm liking it!

     I added two, teeny, rhinestones - one on each side of the sentiment.
