A sparkly bauble for the tree ...

I really enjoyed making his 'bauble' for a special little lady.  The challenge at this weeks Papertake Weekly is to either make a bauble, make something red or green, or make it sparkly - I tried to combine everything and came up with this.   I die cut all the shapes and layered them up with sticky pads to give a bit of depth.  The  Father Christmas image was cut from a sheet of Pion paper as is the green background.  All edges were distressed with gathered twigs ink

On the reverse the words are computer generated in green and I added a brown 30mm wild rose, a couple of white pretty blossoms and two ivory guipure lace leaves

Ribbon, embellishment, twine, flowers, lace leaves are all from www.ribbongirl.co.uk

I hope you will have time to pop over to PTW to be inspired by the design team makes and we look forward to seeing what you come up with!

see you soon, Mary x
