Christmas Card in Gold and Red

For the challenge at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Blog this week,  Hazel would like us to make a card that includes at least one bauble or something that hangs.  I made this card by making another ornament to hang on the card using the same design as I used for another ornament. Rather than my repeating all the directions, please see all the details and supplies used for the hanging ornament at this post.
My card  is a 5.5" square of GKD Cranberry Tart CS that I embossed a part using Cuttlebug EF Kassie's Brocade to create a frame for the ornament. I also scored some lines to outline the embossed portion. I heat embossed a sentiment from Annabelle's "Stamped for Christmas" using versamark and Gold EP. Added some gold bling gems and a Gold Metallic Ribbon. I attached the finished ornament tied with a Gold Metallic bow for hanging with double  side  removable tape so it can be removed for hanging by the recipient.

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
