Christmas Confection...

Hey there!!  Another card I'm getting done at the last minute... that seems to be my MO these days!! This card is for the current Waltzingmouse sketch challenge (which closes like really soon!!) and the current Just Add Ink challenge to add a tag or bookmark.  My tag is tiny, but it's still a tag!



Anywhoo... the reason for my title is that when I finished the card I thought "wow... this looks like a sparkly yummy Christmas cookie!  I guess that has to do with the fact that I went with a very pastel color combo:  pink, light green, light blue and cream.  For this card I used my recently re-discovered  Cheerly Lynn Designs French Pastry Doily die.   (You do ever do this:  buy something put it away and then forget you have it until you are rooting through your stash and find it??   That happens to me way too much!!)  The trees were stamped using SU!'s Pear Pizzazz (probably my favorite light green ink) and then trimmed out.  I used my Quickie Glue pen to add glue to the trees and then applied pale, pale blue glitter to the trees.  Each was then topped with a light blue gem.  All three were adhered to the doily that was diecut from pale pink cardstock at various heights.  The whole piece was then finished off with some absolutely yummy May Arts crinkle ribbon in pale blue (I LOVE that ribbon!!!) and a tiny tag pinned to the bow using a tiny pink pin. 

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream; SU! Pear Pizzazz & Pink Pirouette; Ink:  Pear Pizzazz; Glitter:  Art Glitter in Forget Me Not; Sizzix tag die; Blue Gems; May Arts Blue Crinkle Ribbon; Cheery Lynn Designs Doily die

Gorgeous Rosie, I think you have been digging around in your hidden stash bin for a few weeks now I have definitely noticed some more cards with a little more embellishment on them, and I am really liking them very much.

Love your soft colors for this Christmas card, Rosemary! I wouldn't have thought to use a doily with trees & it's such a nice touch!

I really love the effect of layering the trees on the doily Rosemary, and using the blue glitter. Love that cute little tag too - thanks for playing along at Just Add Ink.
