52CCT - Theme ....

...  Good morning!!!  I think you found our colour challenge last week a bit tough.  Hopefully, this week's theme challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - to use sequins and pearls will be easier!  I certainly had fun with it, here's my card:

Stamps: Woodware - Christmas Bauble Tree; Uniko Studio - Simply Said Christmas
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Raspberry Ripple; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Lil Inkers - Stitched Rectangles #5
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Raspberry Ripple; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; Sequins and Pearls; Gold Marker pen


I've used the colours from Colour Q - cQc#280 for my card.  I die cut the white panel (love the faux stitching effect from these dies) and then stamped the bauble tree and sentiment.  I used Copic markers to colour some of the baubles and the rest were filled with sequins and pearls.  I coloured the pearls with my Copic markers so they would match.  I layered the finished panel on to some raspberry card.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of raspberry card and on the white panel added a greeting and a tiny tree too!  I've included a close up of the sequin and pearl so that you can see them more clearly, also you can see the shimmer on the coloured baubles.
