Joyful Baubles

Happy Monday.... Christmas is nigh.... just around the corner!... Aren't we all so excited?  Our BBTB2 hostess this week is the sweet Julie from across the Pond.  She has asked the design team to create something with baubles.  I selected the Christmas Cheer cartridge ornament.  I mounted an embossing folder from Marianne's Designs to the base card and it was a perfect setting to set upon the ornament.
I cut the ornament out in black cardstock, and then two layers of a pretty turquoise Christmas pattern, I added some pearls and jewels and a pretty golden ribbon.  The sentiment is a clear stamp.
We so love it when you join in on our challenges.  Just follow the simple rules.  Remember, it must be a Cricut cut with the basic theme, give us a shout out on your blog when you link up, and oh please disable any word verification you might have.  I love to leave a sweet comment but I simply cannot read the letters from WV.
