Most of All

Sankari provided this great sketch for VLV week 2. 

We are supposed to choose our own inspiration pieces from any holiday decor.  For my inspiration, I chose this ornament I found on Etsy made by izzilu

I really liked the colors of the ornament against the green of the tree.  It also resembles a flower! 

Here's my card.  My colors are more muted than those in the inspiration photo, but I'm hoping you can see how it relates to that beautiful ornament.

I used dp from Basic Grey's "Curio" collection.  The sentiment is from Verve's "Bountiful Harvest."  The edges of the sentiment panel are sponged in SU! Old Olive and then I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink over it to give it an aged look.  I used my oval Nesties to cut out the sentiment and mat.

 I used a MS deep border punch and some peach satin ribbon that I have probably had for at least 10 years (felt great to use up that chunk of ribbon!) that I tied with my Bow Easy.  The large rose is from Prima, and I think the little one is from Recollections as are the black pearls (you can see them best in the first picture).

I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas!  Thanks for stopping by!
