A christmas ornament card

I liked the sketch this week over at Merry Monday so thought I better get in before tomorrow when the challenge ends. 

Here is my card for you:

I have used the small merry christmas sentiment from the new holiday mini hostess set called Mixed Medley, love this set.  The main ornament comes from the all new ornament keepsakes stamp set and matching framelit die.

The centre panel is made with the new cherry cobbler coordinations cardstock and the lacy brocade embossing folder.
I also used the new cherry cobbler tulle to make the bow and with the added clear faceted button and twine.  I also added a little of the cherry cobbler dazzling details to the ornament.

I am also going to add this to Just Add ink as my second entry, after all it too has dots lol.

This card was the merry monday card challenge winner for this challenge, yay, thanks Lesley for choosing me this week
