More pink Christmas and CAS(E) this sketch

Today's card came together very quickly. I love when that happens.

While I was browsing my ancient pink Christmas papers by DCWV, my eye fell on this sentiment paper and I immediately thought of this week's sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch.

All I had to do was cut a rectangle, and ink (Althenew pinks) and heat emboss (Versarmark ink and Irridescent sparkle EP) the ornament die cut I still had lying on my craft table. I used the ink that was remaining on my dauber to also add a little pink to the PP background. After mounting the panel and the ornament, I pierced two holes, added the twine and called it a day.

Materials used:
Cardstock - PTI Rustic white
Inks - Altenew & Versamark
Ornament & rectangle dies - Holiday Ornaments
and Stitched rectangles by Simon Says Stamp
Embossing powder - Irridescent sparkle by Judi Kins
Twine - Metallic Classic by Hemptique
