Nice Shiny Bauble.

This is my 1st card for the challenge over at Lady Anne's which is to use this digi image supplied by Digi Stamps 4 Joy. I also wanted to combine it with the sketch challenge over
at Christmas Challenges this week which had a twist to it. We had to use not only the sketch but 4 papers,3 brads, 2 flowers & embossing. I do so like a challenge!!!





 I have coloured the bauble using silver and gold ink pens by Papermania and then gluing /sticking pearls and gems following the design on the digi. Backing papers are all from my stash along with the gem brads. The sentiment is cut from an embossing folder which a friend had sent to me. The flowers are a  Memory Box die 'Fancy Blossoms ' No 98312.
Close up of the bauble. Believe it or not there are 55 gems/pearls on there and  I bet you just counted them!
 
 Entering into the following challenges:
Lady Anne's Progressive challenge #6: Use image by DS4J.
Christmas Challenges #80: Use sketch +twist.
Holly Jolly Christmas: Use something New. (Digi)
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra #7:  Anything goes.
Make my Monday: Christmas in July.
Card Mania #24: Christmas in July.

So very pretty, love the sparkle and pearls. I didn't use pearls on my card - I've a pearl pen and I 'make' the pearls any size and, a real bonus for me, it's cheaper!

I didn't squeal on you, just told Miss there were some piglets, must have been Sam or Darnell lol Karen x

Donna said...

Wow Mrs A, this is stunning and such beautiful detail with the pearls and gems...your card has it all :) Donna x

My goodness, you spent a lot of time adhering baubles. Simply beautiful card. I'll have to check out those Papermania gold & silver pens, as I'm always looking for good pens in those colors, that don't dry out. Love all the elements you used for trims & papers...so lovely with your gorgeous image. TFS
