I am enjoying my craft room:) Now what did I do here? Well, last week at 52 CCT they had a colour challenge which I missed but it ties into this week:) I love anything sparkly and I love balls, um I mean ornaments (sorry the devil made me write that:)). I used my new sizzex machine and I never used this embossed Ornament sheet so I did! I embossed on basic white cardstock.  I painted the balls in tombow markers (royal blue, some lighter blue one, bright green, magenta and pink). I placed white glitter where it showed white. I used my new gold brush paint and painted the gold directly around the balls  (I just can't help myself). I used a gold and light blue ribbon around the card. I stamped white piece of card stock in blue and placed it on the lower right corner and put the Merry Christmas sticker on it and finished it off with lots of crystals, 3 coloured threads, black beads at the end and the snowflake! Whew-This is not layered! Don't you love it when the balls glitter? OK please don't wash my mouth out with soap.:) I know, I know I am a bad girl and I am shaking my head at being a brat.

  2. I don't know how you were able to use so many balls in such a tiny space (sorry - the devil made me write that). Cute card and thanks for the laugh.

    1. The cuddlebug machine:) It is so easy you would love it! There is already an embossed folder with these balls. You place the paper in between the embossed plastic sheet with the design you want and then crank it through the cuddlebug machine and instant gratification!I then coloured it all and added the extras

    The glittery balls look very pretty. When I saw the image I thought you did it on fabric! It looks amazing! ♥
