Time Out Challenge #71 - Theme Challenge

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!  I hope you are all stuffing yourself with delicious food and spending quality time with your loved ones!  I know that's what I'll be doing today!

The new challenge over at the Time Out blog is a Theme Challenge.  The theme this time is Christmas with the optional twist of using glitter and/or shimmer.  I love glitter and shimmer!

I made a very simple card today.  I started by die cutting this ornament die from white glitter paper.  I adhered it to a red piece of cardstock that was run through an embossing folder.  Then I added some clear sequins and was done.  I was going to add a sentiment, but I liked it the way it was:  simple and elegant!
You can see more from our Time Out design team and our guest for this challenge, Valentyna, on the Time Out blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
Paper:  White, red, white glitter paper
Accessories:  Peyton Ornament die (SSS), Quilted embossing folder (We R Memory Keepers), sequins
