Merry Christmas

Just wanted to say a massive thankyou for all of the comments yesterday, I have taken them all on board and put the card to one side to have another play with! I really appreciate your help. 

Now before I share any pictures of this card I want to BAN Kerry, Pinky, Hayley and all those other people who will comment on the PINK lol! yes I know I know I hate pink but whats a girl to do when thats what comes in the packs of papers? 

Moving swiftly on!

This image I originally saw on a tile which someone was selling on a blog, and it has been spoken about loads on a electronig cutting group I am part of, I saw that it also comes as a stamp but I managed to find a freebie file so decided to use it as just that! 

I printed it out, used a circle nestie to cut round it then spent about an hour picking out only pink and red gems from my box of mixed gems!
forgot to take a pic of just the topper after adding small red gem to top!

Then working off this sketch


I created this card



Although now I have made the card I realise that I was supposed to add a greeting under the image! Whoops! 

Papers are Honey & Hugs xmas, and I have used a Martha Stewart doily lace punch which I had to blow the cobwebs off!

I have made this card to fit in with Karens MSE Winter Wonderland Sketch, lets hope she doesn't mind that I missed off the greeting!

I don't like pink, I really, really do not like pink...but I love this card. Had it been in a shop I would have bought it!

This design would have looked fab in silver and dark blue as well.
