New Challenge #165 at Glitter N Sparkle

Its been a nice peaceful week for a change
though the other half is insisting we start
Xmas decorating soon.
So last night was spent putting up the
1st Christmas Tree.
The rest is to be finished off on the
1st December as planned.
Honest he's  bigger kid than the Kids lol

I would also like to wish all my friends
who live in the States a
'Happy Thanksgiving'
(I know it was on Thursday,
but better late than never)
Hope you all had a fantastic day.

The Theme at
Incude A Bow

Digital Delights who are offering

My Project this
week is:-
December 26th Digi Stamp
from Stitchy Bear
at Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet
(One of our sponsors)

To begin with I used Pre-cut Round Bauble Card
which I then covered with Pearlise Gold Card.
I then Die-Cut out Circles using the
Framelet Circle Die Set (8pk)
using Green Card, Pearlised Red Card 
and Pearlised Champagne Card.
(all from my Scrap Card Box)
Which I placed on using Foam Pads
to give it a bit of depth.

For the Bauble Top I used some Glitter White Card
(Scrap Box)
which I Punched using the Lace Trim
I then stuck it on and cut it to fit.

Next I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper
And coloured them in using my Promarker Pens
Dusky Pink
Dusky Rose
Lipstick Red
Berry Red
Cool Grey 1
Metallic Gold

I added a sentiment of my own
'Wakey Wakey, rise and shine.
'Tis the season for Mistletoe and Wine'
in Pine Green.
which I printed on the Computer
in the Heart of the Digi Image
using the Dragline Font.

Next I made up a Die-cut Poinsettia from 
Pearlise Green and Pearlised Burgandy Paper
(which I found in my Die box - so not sure where they came from)
and to that I added a Handmade Bow
using 1.5cm White Ribbon with Gold
(Boyes Haberdashery)
