CAS Christmas Ornaments

I had a busy day today (OK, who am I kidding? ALL of my days are busy any more!) but managed to fit in making this card this afternoon.
It's pretty straightforward. I used all Flourishes stamps, with white-embossed pine branches, silver embossed ornament caps, and silver ink for the ornament strings. I stamped the tea rose on the round ornament with Versamark ink and applied chalk with a sponge applicator.

Challenges:
I'm so very pleased with how this card turned out! Thanks so much for dropping by to take a look and share my little slice of bliss.
