3D Ornament Merry Christmas - The Friday Mashup #89

I love cats, and the sketch with the Friday Mashup here did look like the face of a cat. However, I did not make a cat card, but a card with a 3D ornament on it.  The ornament lays flat for mailing. The challenge this week is to make a card using the sketch, and to add bling, lots of bling (lots of bling is my thing)
Here's my card:

Close up of 3D ornament showing the bling.
First I stamped 3 images of an ornament from the Delightful Decorations stamp set using Cherry Cobbler, punched them out using the Ornament punch, and then applied dazzling diamonds to their edges. Each ornament was folded in half with the stamped side to the inside.  Then they were glued together using tombo glue.
A Whisper White label was die cut using the Labels Framelit, and the edges sponged with Cherry Cobbler.
Using the template left after punching out the ornaments, I lightly daubed Cherry Cobbler with a dauber above and below where my ornament would be hung - on the died cut label.  I then daubed Frost White shimmer paint on each of these ornament - to make it look like they were hanging in the distance (ghost ornaments). Some dazzling details was used in lieu of  Baker's twine. The 3D ornament was attached to the top half of the label - a piece of white Baker's twine emerging from the top of the ornament and taped to the back of the label
Some cherry cobbler baker's twine was wrapped 3 times around the bottom half of the label, and the sentiment, punched with the 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch, was attached to the middle of this with dimensionals.
A bow made with Cherry Cobbler seam binding was attached below the sentiment.
Using dimensionals, the decorated label was attached to the designer paper with a strip of silver glimmer paper at the top.
Here's where I added the bling:
1.  A strip of silver glimmer paper at the top of the card
2.  Dazzling diamonds on the edges of each of the ornaments
3.  Dazzling details instead of Baker's twine on the "ghost" ornaments
4.  Frost white shimmer paint on the "ghost" ornaments
