Prickley Pear Inspiration

Welcome to my first post of the year, it's Monday and that means some Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps inspiration.  Today I want to share my very last Christmas card of the season.  I used the ornament images and coordinating dies from "Victorian Ornaments" clear stamp set and framed them with this beautiful oval die from Cheery Lynn Designs.
I stamped the ornaments on patterned paper and covered with several coats of ultra thick embossing powder, I then adhered them with pop dots for dimension.
I used this sketch from SSC as inspiration for the layout of my card.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog, hope you have a fantastic day.
