Soft, shimmery, blingy, Christmas sketch

First, don't forget to comment on THIS post for a chance to win my blog candy if you did not already.

Today I made a Christmas card for me. Well, not for me per se but because I wanted to meaning it was not design team work or publication submissions. I made it as blingy and glittery as I wanted and I even used retired colors LOL. Take a peek:

Have to type quickly because my computer has to go to the apple store for service and I am so hoping they don't have to keep it. I ran my first layer through my cb, used my corner rounder punch on the bottom and sponged around the edges. The next 2 layers, I used 2 stamps from my set and stamped with sky ink on sky paper, accented with my glitter pen and sponged the edges. The tree is stamped twice and is up on pop dots and I used my SU glue pen and added glitter. The corners were punched with my scallop punch and rhinestones were added. Before adhering this panel to the card I tied my ribbons around it. I punched 2 snowflakes using my new punches and painted them with angel wings shimmerz and added rhinestones to the center. I stamped my sentiment and framed it with my hardware. I hope you like it, because I really do LOL.

stamps- SU season of joy, DRS designs sentiment
CS- soft sky, white
ink- soft sky
accessories/tools- martha stewart snowflake punches, angel wings shimmerz, rhinestones, corner rounder punch, metallic edge ribbon, organdy ribbon, silver hodgepodge, spica glitter pen, marvy scallop corner punch

Well, have a great day and as always thanks for stopping by,
