Hiya crafty peeps and welcome!
This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, for our new challenge: Tie One On,
we'd like to see ribbon, twine, cord, seam binding, floss, etc. on
your cards or projects.
Here's what I made for the challenge:

 and the inside:

Using ornaments I made back from this post, I made a very colorful Christmas card. (I think this may be the 3rd one so far this year. I'm sooooo far behind!) I used silver floss to hang my ornaments from.

I hope you find some time this week to play along at Shopping Our Stash! I'd love to see your
take on the challenge. Need more ideas? Then do yourself a favor and visit the blogs of
my talented teammates, and please leave them some bloggy love!

  1. Beautiful card, Chris! That embossed background is a terrific complement to the ornaments. I'm fond of non-traditional colors in holiday cards. Way to go with that silver string! Was that hard to do?

  2. Just love how you did the baubles, so effective. The purple and the black card so works...fabulous!

  3. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh those are LUSCIOUS! what a gorgeous card!!! <3

  4. yes, i have technically already commented, but that was as an SOS team mate. now i am being a totally impartial JINGLE BELLES representative. so this time i say: ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh those are LUSCIOUS! what a gorgeous card!!! & a brilliant way to use stephanie's sketch! :) :) :) thanks for joining the fun at JINGLE BELLES!

  6. Gorgeous card Chris. Love those beautifully coloured baubles and embossed background. Even more so there is 'purple' lol

  7. Your cluster of ornaments is simply stunning ... love those beautiful marbled colors ... so very glad you got *sketchy* with us at jingle belles.

  8. Oh Chris, this ornaments are stunning!!! gorgeous colors all over the place, they look like they are made of glass, so beautiful.
    Love the elegant feel of this card, the non traditional color combination is rich and fabulous for a Christmas card, must pin this and, with your permission, CASE it too.

  9. Chris, I thought you'd at least make a wine-related card with ribbon, you know, for the full impact of the challenge name! But wow, instead you make this beauty! (You're three ahead of me on the Christmas card-making front, btw...)

  10. Beautiful! Thanks for joining us at Happy Little Stampers!
