G is for Green and Glitter

Good morning,

It's lovely and sunny here in Inverness this morning, I'm not sure of the temperature though as I've not stuck my head out the door yet!  I had a lovely crafty day yesterday.  I met one of my crafting buddies for a cuppa in the morning and in the afternoon I managed to make 2 cards then after dinner Iona and I had some craft time together and I managed to stamp and colour another 2 images.

Todays card is another for the A-Z Christmas Challenge - G is for Glitter and Green.  It's very CAS for me, I don't think I do CAS very well and they aren't very forgiving.  As far as CAS cards go I do quite like this although in hindsight I think I maybe should have embossed the white pearl layer for a bit more texture.

I've used a glitter sheet from a Papermania capsule collection pack I got ages ago in a goody bag and used it for one of the layers and for the baubles which were cut with a Die'sire die.  The white pearl layer was just a loose sheet from my local craftshop and I've stamped a Lucy Cromwell sentiment directly onto it with a Versamark pad then heat embossed with silver Papermania embossing powder.  I've used matching American Crafts baker's twine and added a crystal gem to each corner, that's it job done.  

Thank you for visiting my blog today, hope you have a fantastic weekend.
