I made a card!

I thought I posted these cards last night. I guess I got busy with something else and didn't realize I hadn't posted anything. It seems I don't get to make as many cards or scrapbook pages as I would like to so it's pretty exciting to me when I actually make a card.
This one is a quick and simple card but I like it. I was thinking about lightly inking the edges of the 2 white embossed ornaments but when I tried that it just didn't look right. It is a little hard to see in the picture but the embossing makes them stand out quite a bit in real life.
I have 2 other cards I wanted to share today too. One is from my friend, Stacy Bowers. She is a Stampin' Up demonstrator in the Nashville area and made me a thank you card for getting something at the convention because she wasn't able to go this year. She used the Friends 24-7 set and a great color combination of Old Olive, Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip. Stacy always does beautiful work and this card is a perfect example of her style.
Second is a tag card I got from Chera Wiest. She used the Eastern Blooms stamp set, an oldie but goodie, and an interesting color combination. I wouldn't have though of this combination by myself but it works great! Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink. Don't you love getting happy mail? It is so much better than the kind with windows that your address shows through :~)

I absolutely love the top card, the white ornaments do pop out in the picture, so I can only imagine how much they pop in real life. I may be casing this card, giving you full credit of course.
