Now that we have all of the details out of the way, let me show you one my card, featuring one of the awesome new release images, by Stamping Dragon Designs. This image, as well as the other new Christmas releases are available for purchase, now, in the store.
This gorgeous image is called, "Winter Beauty." She's been colored with Promarkers, and glitter added to her the holly and flowers in her hair. I've used this yummy Christmas Green glittered cardstock as my card base, as well as the matting for the image. There are two patterned papers, though one doesn't show much. The holly DP is from Hobby Lobby and bought specifically to do this card. The center panel of DP, beneath the image, is silver metallic paper embossed with white Swirls. (This paper is absolutely gorgeous, I wish you could see it better. Shame on me for covering so much of it up!) I used Metallic green rick rack trim (or ribbon, whatever you prefer to call it). The center pointsetta is by Prima. (I bought these on clearance last year after Clearance and stashed them away. I've never used them, till now!) I added a small metal snowflake to the flower, to make a decorative center. My card layout fits the sketch at Cupcake Crafts, at MyGrafico">, at Fussy and Fancy and at 2 Sketches 4 You.
How's that, for tons of sparkle, glitter and bling?!
