Christmas sparkle ....

... Wishing you a good Sunday morning!!  I was really busy yesterday and got another Christmas card made - only about ten more to do then I've finished for this year!!!!  I've used three challenges in the making of this one:
 

Stamps: Papermania - A Christmas Carol Baubles; My Favourite Things - Seasonal Sentiments
Inks: Memento - London Fog; SU - Rose Red
Accessories:  Stampin' Up! Card - Rose Rose, Pretty in Pink; Glitter and gems and card from stash


This card really is very quick and simple to make.  I cut a couple of mat layers in the two shades of pink and adhered them to the card base.  I stamped this gorgeous branch of baubles in London Fog on plain white card and coloured the baubles with Promarkers.  I kept it simple by doing all the baubles pale pink with a touch of dark pink for the accents.  I finished off with lots of sparkle in the form of glitter and some gems which you can see in the picture here.  I've had this stamp for several years and I think it always makes such an elegant card.  For the inside I cut a mat in pale pink and white and stamped the sentiment in Rose Red.

That's all for now - we were going to put our tree up last weekend but didn't get around to it - but today's the day!  Will post pictures later.  Have a good one!
