Swinging into Christmas

Hello everybody! Just a couple of days left and THE day will be here. Are you excited? I'm really looking forward to it. This year even more, because it's my baby's first Christmas. So much fun! I was wrapping Christmas presents yesterday so now I'm pretty much done with all the preparations for the big day. Yay! :)

Here's another one of the Christmas cards in non-traditional colours I made this year.

I used the beautiful glittery paper from Bo Bunny and some other papers from my stash. I really like this colour combination. I haven't done any colouring with distress inks in a while, so I thought I would change this and therefore I grabbed those ink pads and coloured this cutie. On the bauble and on the white parts of the dress I also used diamond stickles.

Around the image I glued pearl string and then I used some die cut stars, a piece of cheesecloth, some gems and small pop pom trim to decorate the card.

Have a wonderful holiday season! Hugs! xx
