Monday Lunchtime Comfort & Joy

My card was inspired by the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 145.  It is a really clean and simple design and called out Christmas to me.

I flipped the card so my oval image was laying the long way.  I used Very Vanilla card stock for the base.  Cherry Cobbler card stock was embossed with the large dot Texturz Plate.  A piece of Old Olive card stock was paper pierced along all four sides using the Paper-Piercing Tool with the paper-piercing pad and template from the Mat Pack and then added to the Cherry Cobbler layer.  The Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper was also added.  The sentiment from the Word Play stamp set was stamped with VersaMark ink and Cherry Cobbler ink, heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder using the Heat Tool and punched out with the large Oval Punch.  I sponged around the edges with a Stampin' Sponge and Cherry Cobbler ink.  An Old Olive Brad was added to the top of the ornament "hook".  I added two Cherry Cobbler Brads to the Old Olive and the whole layer was attached to the card front.  The sentiment was popped up with Stampin' DimensionalsCherry Cobbler is such a rich shade of red.  The photo just doesn't do it justice.  I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

This is a great card! One of my favorite Texturz plates is the large dots and this card showcases it wonderfully. I also love to paper pierce and sponging is my middle name! Everything I love to do in one beautiful card. Thanks for blessing my day. :)
