ABSC002 - Peace on Earth.......another Christmas card!

Hello!

One more Christmas card for 'show and tell' today!
AnnaBella Stamps blog challenge no 2 is a sketch featuring lots of bling!
I've once again used the Holly Branch set, it's such a great set to stamp with. I love the sentiments and the fonts they use just as much as the holly. For this card I used the 'Peace on Earth' sentiment with the smallest of the holly sprigs

Base card is plain white with a layer of Basic Grey Figgy Pudding (red) followed by Figgy Pudding Forest. I sanded all the edges of both layers.
The centre is made up of two shapes, green for the base and more of the red for the top layer, both with sanded edges. Before I cut the red layer I stamped the sentiment and holly in black ink, the holly was then coloured with Copic markers. The centre was attached with fine foam tabs which pop it up very slightly.
I've used a Cuttlebug die to cut four red antique corners.
That just left the bling! I've gone for my Cherry Sprinkles, using the very small ones for the holly berries and three on either side of the card.

Have you joined in with this challenge? You don't need to use AnnaBelle stamps to play along, why not give it a try. You'll have to be quick though it ends Aussie time Thursday evening 19th.

That's it for today, thanks for dropping by till next time..........
