Girly Christmas...

Hiya, back again, this time with my DT inspiration for The Crafty Addicts challenge that has also started this morning. Our theme to follow is 'Anything Goes' or optional twist of  'Make it Girly'. Sponsoring us is All Dressed Up Stamps and I am using their cute little image called Girls Christmas Stocking. So with it being 'Girly', I have used this bright pink and gold colour theme, a little bit different for Christmas, but I think it works well!


Here I have matt and layered non-shed gold glitter card with pink linen effect card. On this I have placed a paler pink floral paper along with image topper and the same glitter card. The image I coloured with Promarkers, adding loose glitter for highlight effects. I decorated with a pink vellum die cut poinsettia, gold glitter leaves and gold berry sprigs and blossom stamen with added glitter glue. I also added gold die cut snowflakes, pink bow then finished off with gems, sentiment topper that I created on word doc, printed then die cut out, layering on gold die cut card...
