JustRite Friday Challenge #073: Anything But Square

Having recently received lots of gorgeous shimmer paper from a dear friend from MN and having recently purchased JustRite's Christmas Mini Sentiments, I was anxious to make a Christmas card on this toasty 111-degree day here in the desert!
I love the shape of Spellbinder's Heirloom Ornament cut from this gorgeous cream and gold glittery paper and thin chipboard, and especially paired with Spellbinder's Labels Four, so JustRite's Friday Challenge was
perfect. I've mounted my ornament on a Grand Labels Four shaped card cut from cream CS and pop dotted atop a layer of red shimmer paper. My ornament is trimmed with Tim Holtz Washi tape, holly leaves cut from a retired Spellbinders' die, accented with glitter from Sakura's Gelly Roll pen and Copic colored holly berry gems (which really match IRL but my shimmery paper and photo lights make them look a bit off).
My "From Our Family" mini sentiment was die cut using JustRite's JB-08950 Nested Frames Dies to which I then added the decorative edges only from a Spellbinders' Fancy Tag. I'm just smitten with these mini sentiments which let the rest of my card take center stage! I just looked at JustRite's Super Sale and they're are sold out, but if you hurry you can still get their Halloween Mini Sentiments here before they're gone -- you won't be sorry!
