Week 234 - Bring on the Bling

Good Morning Everyone,

How was your week? another one flies by and we are being constantly reminded how need Christmas is! I ask myself where has this year gone?!  I am going Christmas shopping at Meadowhall on Monday with Caroline (who is trying to organise me! - I really don't think she realises what a job she has taken on!!
We have been doing quick and easy Christmas cards this week in workshops for those of us who are struggling to get all of their cards done.
Today at the Allsorts Challenge we have been asked to show you a project which fits into this title:.................  Bring on the Bling
so I thought this project would fit the bill .......................................
This is a demonstration card that I did a few weeks ago on Create and Craft using several Sepllbinders products including the Die-lite mini Holiday Tree and the Reindeer is from the Holiday forms set and this has been cut from gold pearl cardstock.  The trees have with layered with a 2nd tree and both layers have been guilded with flake. The framework has been made using Labels 18 which I really enjoy using. The greeting is a Cheery Lynn Die which is one of my favourites and I have also used gold gleams on this. This particular die cuts like a dream.  The background is an embossibility (apologies the name escapes me!) and I have used some guilding wax from Crafty Notions to highlight the embossed area.
The finishing touch is the bling which I have randomly stuck onto the background.
I hope that you are able to leave a quick comment and tell me what you think to this card.
I personally like the design and loved working with all of the products that I have used on this project.
Thankyou to our sponsors this week:

Enjoy a lovely weekend whatever you are doing and hope to see you next week.
Bye for now
