Christmas in July

Evening Folks
A bit of a late post for me but been busy today.  Spent some time in my crafty room working on a wedding table plan and post box that I have been asked to do.  The wedding is in a couple of weeks so will post some piccies after the event.

Finally found some time to create a card just for fun and not for a DT.  I decided to have a play with some Imagination Crafts products that I recently ordered.

I used a stencil called Hanging Bauble and applied Sparkle Medium through it in gold and red berries.  Just love the sparkle medium.  Once dried I matted onto red mirror card and black card.  For embellishments I simply added a bow, poinsettia flower and gems to each corner.  The sentiment is a glittery peel off that I bought last christmas.  Really like the way it came out and will certainly be making a few more of these for my christmas cards. 

Here is another shot which hopefully shows more of the sparkle.

Thanks for popping by and hope you will pop by again soon.
