offering another lucky person a goody bag (see the main challenge site to see it)
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 there for you.
I decided to use on of the many Xmas Toppers from the Hobby House, a lovely quick way to make a card and this image had a big red bow on it so shouted out to be used.
The base layer and contrast is silver mirror card. I used up some of my old papers as they picked up the blue colour on the topper. I used one of my PATP from MS to create a decorative layer to present the topper on. I edged the topper with glitter, before decorating with a big red double bow, a button which was from the neutral set at the HH and then airbrushed it to match the papers, I tied a little red twine through this and created another little bow. I added some little and large green holly leaves to pick up the image holly and decorated with more pearls in red and around the frame mid blue all from the Hobby House.
Here is a close up of the topper which is from the
