So here is my take on the theme but don't forget to hop over to the main challenge blog to check out the wonderful inspiration their for you.
I am trying to use up some of my card blanks from those kits you get bought :)
The base card is cream, I have added a layer of gold mirror card, then a layer of white card which has been run through the cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I also ran the gold frame for the image plate through the same folder. Ribbon, pearls and little red bell charms from stash.
Here is a couple of close ups of the image, one is to show you the whole image and the second to show you a close up of the glossy accents added to the candy canes, so difficult to photograph the shine, but think I managed it.
The image is from an unmounted sets by Joanna Sheen
