AAA CAS Cards Challenge #79

Hello friends, are you ready for our latest challenge over at AAA CAS Cards?
It's getting to THAT time of year and we like to help you out so our
theme for the next 2 weeks is Christmas!

Here's mine and I've gone all traditional in colour and using 
a new to me Christmas ornament die by Simon Says Stamp.

Using a combination of green Distress inks I've inky blended the base of my card 
having masked off the top portion. Added my obligatory spritz of water with perfect pearls, 
die-cut the Christmas ornament from the inked panel and some gold glitter card before 
resetting it back it's space. It's mounted on 3d foam for added interest and dimension.
A strip of glitter card to divide the 2 halves, a delicate string of embroidery cotton, sentiment
 by Mama elephant and a glittery gem by Happy Little Stampers finishes the job!

I'd like to pop my card in at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge
where it's an Anything Goes week and 

Time Out Challenges where it's a Christmas theme with an optional twist 
of glitter / shimmer

We're also joined by one of our previous winners; Marianne of
