To My Wife at Christmas

This is a card I made using Stamping Bella Uptown Girl called Savannah has a star.

I covered a base card with the wood effect paper from My Minds Eye collection called Necessities. The top patterned paper is from Simple Stories collection called Claus & co. I used red mirri card to cover the join between the two which I cut using some fancy edge scissors. I added red glitter letters from Hobby craft to spell out "to my wife". I used some gold edge ribbon from Crafty ribbon (Which I got using a voucher I won on a challenge!) and made a little bow. I used some old school peel offs which I coloured red with my Promarkers and places them inside the die cut silver card star, which I attached to the end of the ribbon. I used gold pen on the strings of beads and silver on the star. I also used some glaze on the champagne glass and on the baubles to make them shine.

I used these promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - Antique White, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
Tree - Aniseed, Lime Green, Pear & Moss
Hair - Sandstone, Cinnamon, Cocoa & Henna
Baubles - Red, Poppy & Burgandy
Drink - Vanilla & Buttercup.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Inky Impressions- to someone special 
Color Throwdown - christmas colours 
Bunny Zoe - Sparkle

All for now - still a few Christmas cards to post but I might do a bumper "all the other cards at once" post ... Hope you are still having a lovely holiday and not too worn out!
