MIM#194 stamped borders and December Blog Hop

I am doing double duty with this card I just made for this week's Make It Monday challenge and the December Blog Hop.  Super excited that it turned out kind of like I was envisioning in my head.  Lots of metallic shine on this card even if the photos don't show it.  Pretty, sparkly, and full of new year celebration vibes.  I will probably use it for an early January birthday card.  Or maybe for my mom's birthday in January.  She is a pretty sparkly person.




Used Circles cover plate stamp set for the stamped embossed circles as well as gold and silver embossing powders.  I used tag sale die for the focal point tag, sequins, black rhinestones, ribbons, and a Stampin' UP! set for the tag glass and sentiment.  Fun card.
