Happy Little Ornaments

Well, this card just made itself. haha! I was looking at some of my cheap Christmas stamps from Studio G and thought that it might be fun to make a row of the ornaments and then add a Merry Christmas at the top. I do like the Kraft part. I just don't know if I like it on the green. I tried adding it to a white background, cream background, red background, and finally the green. I really wasn't crazy about any of them. But I like the layout on the top note die. I think it's kind of fun. And in fairness to my little card, this isn't the best picture. We did finally get a new camera so that I can see what I am taking pictures of. But the coloring on the camera seems really off to me. The background and ribbon is Ripe Avocado from PTI, so if you are familiar with their product, that's what it is (the ribbon on my post just before this one is the same ribbon...doesn't look like it does it?). It is one of my favorite greens to use. I love it, and I don't think that this picture does it justice at all, and Photoshop wouldn't help me save it either. So I'm off to see if I can figure out a way to pull this off, because I want to make more little ornament cards.

Stamps: Studio G
Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, Pure Poppy
Copics: RV29, YG95

I love your row of ornaments hanging from the ribbon. Very cute idea. I know what you mean about choosing background papers. I had that same problem just this morning. I must have tried my patterned paper against 10 different colors with none that looked good. I finally gave up and changed the patterned paper instead of fighting with the one I had originally chosen. I do, however, like your choice of green.
