My 25 Days of Christmas Challenge! Day 6

Hi Again Everybody!!

Wow Day 6 and I am on a roll and getting into the swing of things.  I think I am really liking my Day 6 card the most.  I love swirls/flourish and flowers and bling/glitter together in any combination or arrangement.  So here is my card.

The paper had the design on it originally and what I did was to add the sheer ivory and maroon ribbon. The I stamped the gift box in brown ink onto tan card stock, adhered two layers of foam tape on the back and placed the image over the knot.  I added the pearls one by one in the swirl pattern; with a gold glitter pen I outlined some of the flourish and drew on the gold corners, then I added the silk flowers.

Lastly, I colored in the holly on the image added some more gold accents to the present.  All in all I am very happy with the end result.

What I used:

-Champagne flat back pearls
-Ivory and Maroon sheer ribbon
-Gold glitter pen
-Silk flowers
-Studio G image
-Studio G brown ink

Thanks for stopping by for Day 6 and I will see you back again tomorrow on Day 7.  Have a great day!!!

WOW!!! This just took my breath away. Then I read all you did to make it. Phew...what a process that must have been to add all the pearls individually! The came out so perfectly spaced. Well worth the effort as the end result is STUNNING!
