Tree Ornament Card and Happy WCMD!

Hello everyone!  It's the start of a rainy weekend here and World Card Making Day is today!  Happy WCMD to you all!  I'm hoping to get crafty today and make some fun cards.  :-). So, today I've got a card that uses, what I think, is a very versatile stamp set.  I love to look a a stamp and suddenly see a different way to use it.  Take a look...

So I broke out my Party Dots set by Neat and Tangled and I used the large dotted circle as my ornament base and stamped it in royal purple StazOn.  The hanger part of the ornament came from a Hero Arts stamp which I stamp in dove grey StazOn.  I fussy cut it out and attached it with some foam dots.  I added an iridescent ribbon and dazzling diamonds glitter (SU!) to the dots.  As usual, the glitter is hard to capture on camera.  I stamped my sentiment (Hero Arts, Joy To All set) and then matted my panel on purple and attached to my white card base.  Another thing I love doing is creating Christmas cards in non- traditional colours.  Expect more in the next few months!  :-)

I'm going to link up to the following challenges:

Little Tangles - it's an "Anything Goes" challenge.
ABC Christmas Challenge - T is for Tree Ornament.
Merry Monday Christmas Challenge - use stripes or polka dots or both.  I've just got the dots.
Virginia's View Challenge - the challenge this month is to make a CAS card.  Don't have to twist my arm on that one Virginia!  LOL.
