Christmas Baubles

Afternoon Everyone

Well that's me all done now for Christmas, all my cards have been made and sent out and Christmas presents bought.  All I need to do now is get them all wrapped and then deliver them to family and friends.  I can't believe we are 11 days from Christmas day!  Where has this year gone!

I am now making cards for me and I am hoping this is the last Christmas card for this year.  There is a fab Crimbo Crackers Challenge blog which Ruth runs every fortnight throughout the year so I plan to play along and it will give me the incentive I need to not leave everything to the last like this year! Watch this space!!!!!!!!

Here is my card I have made for a few of the challenges for this month!

The base card is a 6 x 6 Navy blue pearlescent card.  I have used my Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder and embossed onto pale blue card.  I then used Dew Drops Brilliance Silver and distressed inked the snowflakes which makes them "POP".  I have used 3 baubles from a Hunkydory kit and attached silver holographic border peel offs to give the illusion of them hanging down the card.  I have added white pearl gems to each bauble. The sentiment reads "Have a very Merry Christmas" I have added 2 blue star gems either side.  The snowflakes have been cut out using my Martha Stewart Snowflake corner punch in blue mirri card and silver glitter card.

Thank you for stopping by today

Pretty card Linda. I've tried so hard to make a card with ornaments hanging like that and mine just never look right - Yours is perfect though. Really like the embossing folder with this too.
