Card member DT (design Team) Donna created this card from their blog, CASE-ing Christmas-Isn't it beautiful?!. I love how the background was created. I love blue and purple together so I decided to create a card with these colours and included glitter and gems because I am the glitter queen. I also love black and I loved how the light blue and black looked. I love this stamp even though I think the stamp itself is a bit like a pointelist method(think Seurat, the Impressionist). I actually think it is an error when the actual stamp was made, but I still love it. It's Victorian in feel so I had to include the ribbon which is so rich. Mind you the Victorian look is all I go for since I am anything but Victorian:) We all need an angel on our shoulder on occasion and so, when creating this I thought of Liz Blocker who is all snowed under. Even though it is Christmas themed, it's still an angel:)

  5. Very pretty! I'd really like to see it in real life as shimmer papers and glitter are so hard to capture in photos and I imagine it is quite sparkly. : ) And that gold ribbon really is rich and adds to the ornate feel. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2.
