Stripes & Sequins: A Christmas Card

Hi, friends!  I'm here with a "just because" Christmas card--you can NEVER start too early!  This card was going to be a semi-one-layer creation...and then I made the mistake of stamping the sentiment before I saw exactly how I wanted the ornament to lay.  Luckily the washi tape was easy to take off and this became a few layers...but STILL CAS!  

Here's my card~

For these fabulous challenges~






The shine was hard to capture, but the ornament and sentiment are heat embossed...the sequins are green..can you visualize it?  SO much better in real life...

I've used washi tape from my stash...I believe the green is from We R Memory Keepers, but I don't know where the red and gold are from.  The stamps are also unknown companies--I bought these at the last consignment sale I went to at my local craft store!  And the sequins are from a garage sale.  OH, the gold embossing powder is from Stampendous!.  At least I know where that's from! ;)

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my creation!  I hope you join in the fun of these fabulous challenges!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
