Seeing Circles at Christmas

I have a really fun Christmas card to share that I made for this month's Theme Challenge: Christmas over at DeNami Design!

My circle-centric design and colors were inspired by this week's Tuesday Trigger. I just had to play off the round shapes of all of those shiny Christmas ball ornaments!
I stamped that fabulous Whimsical Merry Christmas sentiment--from DeNami, of course--on vellum. The patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Be Merry collection, while the sparkly pink glitter paper is from American Crafts.

Thanks for popping in for a little slice of bliss today!

Once again, you show how good you are being inspired by a photo! You picked out the colors just perfectly, and have lots of 'balls' on your card. I also like the stamping on vellum; good touch!
