Oooh, how exciting is it the week before Christmas? :) We are off out to Glasgow today (my favourite city after my birthplace Nottingham! lol :) and it is truly beautiful. We are only going for a mooch around and to feel xmassy, you dont get the excitement of lights, shoppers and madness when you live so remote. :)
Anyway, onto my card. Today sees the start of a new 2 week challenge over at Sweet Stampin where this week our theme is 'Glitter, Sparkle or Bling', and we are sponsored by the lovely Di's Digis .
For my card I hand-stitched Bo Bunny papers, used Spellbinder and Marianne dies, card candi and my favourite MS doily punch. The gorgeous image is 'Poinsetta' from Crafts and Me and I just enlarged it, and cropped it to focus on just the top part of the image. Thats why I love digis - its like having multiple stamps! :)
Now, I dont get on very well with glitter, and it doesnt like me either. I have ruined many a card when adding the final touches with glitter......... but I found my box of Glitter Art Medallion glitter and its such a fine transparent glitter it was easy to use. There are 3 shades on her wings, and it looks much better IRL.
