Poinsettia's And Pearls

You know what I love most about Christmas cards? Feeling like there can never be too much bling on them! I loaded this baby up with silver sparkled ribbon, silver embossing powder, half pearls and beaded snowflakes!
This poinsettia is a new digi image from DZ Doodles. I printed it out 3 times and layered it for dimension. A versamark pen and some silver embossing powder added the sparkle and copics added the color! I still deem myself a Copic flunkie because I used 3 different colors and you can't even tell! LOL...I will leave the copics to the pros.
I used the Spellbinders square Nesties and one of the tags from the Fancy Tags collection. Each layer was stitched with my sewing machine, using Madeira rayon thread.
I used Bazzil cardstock and both Basic Grey and Making Memories DP.
I love your comments so let me know what you think!

Challenges:
Allsorts - Monochrome Christmas Sketch Challenge - I used the sketch and my color is blue!
Whimsy Stamps - Get Punchy - I used two spellbinders die cuts
Stamp Something - Bling It - I used a whole lotta bling!
Everybody Art - Shapes and punches - I used die cuts
Paper Play - Favorite Embellishment - I LOVE using ribbon on everything

Beautiful card, Peg. Love the colours - especially making the poinsettia blue. And I can see you spend a long time on your cards (as do I!) - from all the detailing, stitching and embossing. Great work.

Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay this week.

Love the blues and the bling! Super card with lots of fun embellishments. Keep practicing with the Copics. It's worth it when you finally master the techniques!

Hi Peg

Great take on Brenda's challenge.

I love your colour choice, all the fantastic stitching and of course "the bling". You can never have too much of this on a Christmas Card.

Thank you for playing along with Allsorts this week.

Love Jules xx
