A Little Christmas....A Little Enabling!

Good morning to you! I can't believe it is Friday already and I will be returning to school on Monday. This summer has flown by at warped speed! It has been busy but fun and I am a bit sad to see it go! I have a card to show you today as well as some important information to enable you just a bit! ; ) I created this card using JustRite's Christmas Ornament set. The image was colored with Copics and cut out using the Spellbinder's Scalloped Octagon. I left the die in place and did a bit of airbrushing. I stamped the sentiment with Black Memento ink and cut it out with the Spellbinder's circles and again left the dies in place while airbrushing. I cut out a scalloped circle as well. I layered the pieces and added dimensional foam squares under the circular sentiment to give it dimension. I also added tiny pearls. The rest of the card was Cuttlebugged and glittered. I added ribbons to the top as a final touch!
I love the dimension using foam squares gives!!!

..................ahhhhhhhh........glitter!......I looooooove glitter!!!!
