Glitter, Ribbon & pins

Die Cut Dream's challenge this week is glitter, ribbon and pins.

I started off using a new stamp I bought at Exeter the other week - it's called NO-EL by Hobby Art and I loved the polar bears and penguins on it.  Stamped with Memento and coloured using ProMarkers.  I then took some double sided adhesive sheet, cut to size, placed over the image.  I then took the top layer off and sprinkled with Glamour Dust.  I then layered onto black and red mirri card.  The card base is a DL covered in paper from my PM Classic Christmas set.  I punched the long edge using Martha Stewart's raindrop edge punch (which I thought looked a little bit like Christmas lights) and added some red card underneath.  A piece of red card and the patterned paper were placed underneath the main image.  I used some red and white dotty ribbon and then punched out some flower layers from red and black card using SU punches and used a pin from Posh Pins & Charms to attach them.  The pin started off with black beads and a pearl inbetween but as I wanted red I thought I'd try colouring it with ProMarkers and it worked brilliantly.  The sentiment is computer generated (I could just imagine the polar bear on the right of the image saying this in a very gruff voice!!!  lol) and matted using SU punches.  The last thing I did was to put a strip of red liner tape down the right hand side of the card and sprinkle it with Glamour Dust.

Thanks for dropping by.
