All of my Favourite Things...

Wow think I've got everything on this card, think there's some definite Christmas Sparkle... got gems, glitter, glossy accents, pearly paper and some shiny irridesant dot stickers lol. And it's pink!!!! All of my favourite things, though I have to say half way through I was cursing the idea of putting gems on for all the baubles, especially the tiny ones at the bottom cos they kept sticking to my fingers instead of the paper lol, but I stuck at it (get it lol) and managed to get them all attached. And not only that but the scalloped circle was drawn and cut-out by hand!!!! Do I get a medal??? (really really really must invest in a die-cutting machine (but there's so many and get confused and give up everytime I look) and some nesties)


And time for a close-up, you can see a bit of the pattern on the pink background paper too (doesn't show up on the main picture because the pearl reflects the flash lol - but it's covered in snow flakes)


Supplies: 'Tracey & Reindeer' Stamp by Ladybug Crafts Ink, Sentiment Stamp by Lili of the Valley, 'Winter Wonderland' Papers by Crafts House, Double Dot Card by Bo Bunny, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug, Dot Stickers by Paperchase
Extras: White Card, Pink Ink Pads, Ribbon from Stash, Gems, Copics, Promarkers, Glossy Accents

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 3 - Christmas Sparkle

The Pink Elephant Challenge 88 - followed their fabulous Sketch

Paper Cutz Challenge 68 - Christmas (with lots of BLING)

I love this card, the colours, bling and stamp all seem to have come together really well (even if I do say so myself, and love the sketch, will definitely be using it again (though maybe after I invest in a scalloped circle cutter of some sort cos don't fancy cutting that out again lol) XOX

PS nope couldn't resist and had to post it today lol

{{{SCREAM}}} how cute is that? So glad you "stuck" with it - those gems are PERFECT. And dang yes you get a medal for drawing and cutting that scalloped circle by hand - holy cow! Marvelous!

Hi Helen Ann, very well done!! You really invested time in this card!! My goodness!! As for die cutting machines, I bought the cuttlebug recently and am very happy with it. It cuts just about every die on the market and that's what you want and the price is not too high! If you have any questions I'm happy to help out.
Hugs, Frea

Hi Helen Ann, thanks for your comments on my blog. You really must get out your paints and paper and start decorating your wooden draws! It really is so much fun to do and it's great to spread out from just doing cards. Let me see the finished result when you have done it!! Love Pami x
