Bellissima Christmas Card


So it's week 2 of the school holidays and it's a bit dark and murky outside.  We had fantastic weather on Saturday it seemed almost tropical compared to this lol!  Anyway, bad weather is good crafting weather so every cloud and all that!

Today's card is one I coloured last week with the gorgeous Docrafts Bellissima papers in mind.

I was lucky enough to get the Christmas goody bag for my birthday last month and these papers (and ribbon) were part of it!  I'm not too sure about the image I think it's a colouring page rather than a digi or stamped image, it was given to me by one of my Docraft's buddies.  I've coloured it with Promarkers to match the papers.  I've used three papers, the green paper is actually patterned too but you can't see much of it in the photo :(  I've edged the image with some Dovecraft glitter glue and all the papers are edged with Aqua Artiste pearlescent pigment ink (my new discovery that I'm in love with, it's gives a lovely pearly sheen that again you can't see from my photo).  The sentiment is by LOTV and the ribbon is also from the Bellissima range.  My card is finished with gems and glitter domes.

Thank you for taking the time to have a look at my post and for any comments you leave, it's greatly appreciated.
