Olympics of Stamping - Christmas Card

Hi all. I'm back with my last card for the Olympics of Stamping Contest over at the Moxie Fab World Blog. Today is the last day to submit so I thought I would go out with a Christmas Card. I love making Christmas cards, and I love even more using nontraditional colors. I don't know that I have ever made a Christmas card with red and green as my main colors.

I was going to stamp a few of these pink ornaments and just cut them out and adhere to my card. But when I was stamping them on my cardstock, I thought that they fit so well stamping them in layers with the shape of the ornament that an idea was born for this card. I did cut out one of the ornaments but only to make the sentiment pop a little. It is amazing where ideas can come from when you are least expecting them.

Thanks for such a fun challenge, Cath!!
