Two Challenges in One Card!

This card was made for two challenges. The Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge #27 is to create a holiday card, and this is also for the QFTD33 challenge over on SCS which honors Hilda/aka Broom. I chose this card from Hilda's gallery to case. I don't have that beautiful ornament punch, so I used a stamp from Michael's dollar bin and embossed it with purple ep and cut it out. I added some dazzling diamonds glitter on the white spots of the ornament, but the camera didn't pick up the shimmer. IRL it looks a lot better than the photo shows. I used 2 different cuttlebug ef's and prisma papers in Majestic purple dk & lt colors. I used Geo Sparklers for the ornament hanger, adding some punched ferns (MS) and a little bow made from SU! elegant eggplant grosgrain ribbon. Quick, easy, and another card added to my stash! I love that:)
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fun trick-or-treating weekend!!

Carol, this is so sweet! I may have to steal the idea of the simple sprigs for the tree branch, I love the beautiful simplicity of this, it makes your eye focus on that lovely ornament. So lovely!
Thanks for joining Speedy's Friends this week!
