MSS Block Party Time!

 
Hey there!
 
It's BLOCK PARTY time again! I was super excited to break into some of the other new stamps released by Market Street Stamps this week!
 
On this one, I combined some of the elements of Julie Day's Country Christmas set with a sentiment from DoBea Albert's Ornaments set! LOVE mixing and matching!
 
 
I started by stamping the cross-stitch border repeatedly across the card. I wasn't trying to be super neat about it- they cross over each other here and there- I meant to do that... lol! I thought it gave it a more "country" look. Then, I stamped the open ornament image on three different sheets of patterned paper (from Lily Bee Design Memorandum 6x6 Tiny Tablet). I really love how the ornaments pop off the front of the card! I finished it off by stamping the sentiment (from Ornaments) across the top!
 
I'm also linking this card up in the new CAS(E) this sketch challenge!
