Christmas Dance

Hello again!   I'm amazed at the amount of views that the craft room post racked up, as a group we are all curious about everyone elses craft room/space.  Here in blogland it racked up over 700 views over two days and on Splitcoast Stampers the photos were viewed by about 1200 people.  Amazing!!!!

On to todays post, this is a VERY pretty Christmas card done in non traditional colours.  When I'd finished this one I thought it was the cutiest card I'd ever made, What do you think?

Is this cute or what?  She is a Lili of the Valley stamp called Christmas Dance and I couldn't resist her.  The base for the card was cut out using the Grand Calibre and Grand Big Scalloped Circles and Grand Circles, these dies have been a godsend for making fanastic card bases.  The decorative paper, I think, came from Papermania, one of their Christmas packs from maybe six or seven years ago.  If you recognise it, maybe you can confirm whose it is and does it have a name, let me know.  The image has been matted and layered using Spellbinders Classic Circles Large and Big Scalloped Circles Large. 

Not a big Copic list this time.  Clothes V13,15,17.  C0,1,2,3.  Skin E00,000,11.  R20.  Hair C1,3,5,7.  The fur trim has been glued and then I used Glamour Dust to give it some texture and sparkle, although it doesn't show up in the photo.

The sentiment is a silver peel off mounted on a Fancy Tags Three tag, chalked before it came out of the die.  The lovely swirly bits are Die-namics Fancy Flourish and Memory Box Frosty Border, since the large snowflake part would have been below the tag, I cut it off and used it to embellie the top of the card.  I've added some Papermania jewels to give a bit of bling.

I'm off to have some breakfast and go get some food for the weekend, and then do some H*******K.  Sorry for the bad language, I do try to keep it under control but some times it just slips out.  I guess, I have to give in and do some H*******K sometime before the house looks like an absolute tip.

Have a good weekend.  Hugz, Janice
