Muse Challenge #143

This week's Muse card at the Muse Challenge is this beauty by Tracey McNeely

Gorgeous, isn't it.

I was inspired by
  • the rectangular panel matted with a rather wide red border 
  • gold heat embossing
  • "joy" sentiment on upper left
  • ornament with bow on lower right
Here's my card

I used this SU stamp set for the ornament which I stamped with Versamark ink, covered with gold embossing powder and heat set.

I used a ruler and black copic marker to add the ornament string. I added a bow (where one tail is nicely looping and the other is being a bit difficult and sticking straight out! - UGH)

The sentiment is from this Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic box stamp set.

To complete the card, I trimmed the front panel down and added a red mat with a 1/2" border.
