Twinkling baubles

I think dies can make lovely clean and simple cards so here is a Christmas card I made recently using dies. I die cut the ornaments and word from silver mirri card. The panel is made from watercolour card coloured with distress inks and then spritzed with perfect pearls - I like the subtle sheen this produces. The panel was mounted on foam to provide some dimension.

I am going to submit this card into the following challenges:-
Merry Monday #134 - ornaments using silver/grey and blue
Inkspirational #69 - prompt word SHINE
CASology week 121 - FESTIVE 

Materials used:-
Memory box die - hanging ornaments 
Sentiment - Sizzix holiday words script
Distress inks - tumbled glass, broken china, salty ocean and chipped sapphire
Perfect pearls mister
Silver mirri card and gems from stash

Thanks for visiting my blog - I really appreciate your comments. Margaret
