Christmas Ornament

Well happy World Card Making Day everyone, I hope everyone is having a lot of time to play and make some cards today.  Here is my card I will submit on the Cricut Blog where they are having a giveaway of the Cricut cartridge "Happy Hauntings" and the October issues of the Cricut magazine.  So stop on over for you chance to win and to see some inspiration.  But you better hurry cut off is midnight tonight.
The card is a half sheet sized card ( 5.5 x 8.5), so the ornament is cut rather big about 5 inches.  It was cut from the Christmas Noel cartridge using all 3 layers.  I cut them all from plain white card stock and then sprayed each layer using a different color of Glimmer mist to color them.  The top green layer I covered with Glossy Accents for some added dimension and shine.  Even the striped background paper I printed using my Imagine and the Mr Frosty cartridge.  I printed it on Cryogen White paper which has a light sparkle to it.  The sparkle shows through the printing.  I think I will have to get more of this for printing with my Imagine.
Here in this close up you can see the Glossy Accents a bit better.  The green border/strip was cut using the MS Elegant Cake cartridge, using Cricut Craft Room I welded three of them together to make it the correct size I needed.  Wow Cricut Craft Room will really be an awesome program when it is released.  They are still working out a few minor bugs but I am sure it will be released soon.  I added some red stickles to the border to look like holly berries??  The Merry Christmas is a stamp.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit, I love to read your comments.
