Pretty Ornaments

I hesitated to share this card because I can’t tell you where I got this image.  It was a free digi from somewhere.  I saved it to my computer and then promptly forgot where I found it.  The thing is, I’ve been enjoying Pinterest lately and one of my boards is titled “Free Digital Stamps”.  Mostly I repin other free images I find on Pinterest.  I repinned one such image recently and shortly thereafter got a message from Pinterest stating that the original pinner had taken the image without the owner’s approval and it had been removed from all boards.  I sincerely hope I’m not doing wrong by sharing this today, and I’d love to say “thank you” to whomever made this very pretty image available.

This is another one of those simple cards – a pretty image surrounded by pretty paper (BasicGrey Jovial).  I printed on Flourishes Classic White cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I dared to add a gold glittered sprig and bow, hoping it will be indiscernible to the post office officials.  The ornaments are glittered as well.  Perhaps you can see it a little if you use your imagination.  The sentiment is from JustRite.

Happy Holidays!

    Ooooh nice card! I'm glad you took a chance and displayed the image w/o knowing the origin. We all had the benefit of looking at a delightful Leslie card and I thank you.

    I recently ventured into Pinterest-land. It's rather addictive, so have tried to limit my time there. It's difficult. Such a fascinating place.

  5. Gorgeous card Leslie. That image is Bird and Bauble from Floppy Latte. I also used it on a card I did for Perfect Sentiment Challenge Anniversary Blog Hop back in October. I love it. Here's a link to it on my blog. http://www.maggiescathouse.blogspot.com/2012/10/christmas-magic-psc53d.html

  13. This is a gorgeous card! I love the colors & the paper is perfect! I know what you mean by "daring" to add things to your card when it comes to the post office. I put so much extra postage on my cards this year to cover the "sins" of handmade cards that I could have sent out twice as many! I love this!!
