For this project I used a Sarah Kay stamp - not feeling very motivated I came across this cute stamp and forced myself to make a card.  I coloured with copics and used gold brilliance ink to distress around the image creating a angelic glow.   Then added a thick layer of varnish.  (by using spray varnish and building up layers.)

I decided to keep the card quite plain by embossing white cardstock and matting and layering on some gold backing cardstock. 

 I used
  • Marianne embossing folder
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder
  • A border embossing and die cut
  • Marianne flourish dies
  • Marianne poinsettia die

Then I added tiny gems, clear gems and pearl embellishments.  Finally I used stickles glitter to
sparkle the flourishes and poinsettia.

Hope you like this, best wishes
