Christmas Bauble

This card is inspired by the challenge at The Alley Way Stamps.  The elements of the picture that inspired me were the shades of pink, the striped straw and the embossed pattern on the mat that the box of drinks is sitting on.  Here is what came from that inspiration:

I am entering my card into these challenges:
The Alley Way Stamps - Be Inspired 55
Seems A Little Sketchy - Sketch 71
Clear It Out Challenge - Embossing and Stencils
Robyn's Fetish Challenge - Anything Goes

I have used a white card blank.  The square has been created using white cardstock stencilled with Tattered Rose Distress Ink using a Memory Box Stencil.  I die-cut a Christmas ornament using a Spellbinder die and then embossed it with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.  The image is from The Alley Way Stamps and has been coloured with copic markers.  I added two different colours of twine and matching bows.

I followed the layout of the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy (link above).
