Wonderful World 03893
For my card today, I’m using one of the new verses,  And I Think To Myself. Don’t know about you, but I can’t stop hearing that song in my head. I thought it would make the perfect ornament to pair with the Earth Ornament. The verse was stamped w/ white pigment ink and embossed with a shimmery blue velvet embossing powder. The little snowflake was also embossed using a sparkly willow green powder. They were die cut with circle dies and added to the stamped, colored earth ornament. The large panel was also die cut and I used a little bit of my out of the box technique. I also stamped two more of the bow top of the earth ornament, colored and fussy cut them. 

The divided back layer is a result of having just sections left of each color, so I attached them together and die cut with a matting basic die. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
