Christmas bauble

This week's muse at Muse Christmas Visions is Marianne who has created this lovely card to inspire us.  I took my inspiration from the shape of the bauble, the colour and the little stamps used to decorate it.  I used a mask to create the bauble shape and then decorated it with little stamps and a few gems.  This is a very quick and easy card to make!
I am also going to enter my card into this week's Less is More Challenge which is to make a card based on the colours of your kitchen.  The blues I used in the bauble are the same colours as the wallpaper in my kitchen.
Materials used:-
Mask - Stamps Away
Snowflakes - Stamps Away Winter Set (Montage)
Sentiment - Creative Stamping Magazine issue 27 Woodland Christmas
Distress inks - broken china and salty ocean applied with an Inkylicious blending tool
Archival ink - cobalt
Sequins and bow from stash

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