Make It Monday #41: Christmas Ornament Card

Hello! I'm in the mood for playing along for challenges! So here's something for Papertrey Ink's latest Make It Monday!

 This week, we have to bring out Essential Glue Pad out and stamp and image with it, and finish off with something fine and... in my case, SPARKLY!

The only thing fine I have is Prisma Glitter, so I had little choice, but I did have this great idea to make a Christmas ornament/bauble. And those of you who know me, know I love to make windows too. So I grabbed out the plastic container PTI stamps come wrapped up in ;)
I used Fancy Flourishes to decorate the 'ornament'. I'm sure I've seen an ornament that looked just like this in real life. I just wish I had gold glitter. It would have been perfect.

This is what the card overlay was looking like halfway through. I stamped with the glue pad on the plastic and applied glitter. Now, Prisma glitter sticks to the plastic due to static, so once the glue had dried off, I had to go and run my finger across to try and remove as much excess off as possible. I also double layered up the glitter so that I didn't have glitter falling behind either.

 Hope you liked the card! I've got another MIM card and CAS-Friday cards to share later to check back again! Thank you for coming :)

Love the use of the flourish! I keep seeing our BB: Sheet music and I have to remind myself to take mine out. It makes such beautiful Christmas cards. Great job!
