Christmas Baubles

Carol is the host for this week's Winter Wonderland challenge and she has chosen the theme 'Baubles'.  The baubles can be part of the image, die cuts, or even the shape of the card - you choose!  We are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs who are offering three digis from their store to the lucky winner.

For my card I've used another lovely Lili of the Valley pre-coloured topper called 'Trimming the Tree'.  I'm entering this card into the Christmas Card Challenges 'Anything Goes', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra 'Anything Goes' challenges.


Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk 
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Trimming the Tree' pre -coloured topper
Card: Red mirri
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Festive Trimmings', red sentiment paper (magazine freebie)
Other: Red nailheads, Stampendous Fun Flock, Wink of Stella

I trimmed the green paper, layered it onto red mirri card and attached it to the card front.  My last strip of red sentiment paper was layered onto red mirri and attached to the left side of the card.  The topper was also layered onto red mirri and attached to the centre of the card with foam tape.  I added three nail heads to the top and bottom corners, highlighted the image with a Wink of Stella and Fun Flock to the dog's hat.
