Christmas In July with Stampin With The Dragon

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

with a fabulous theme of 

Christmas in July

with a fabulous sponsor

The winner will receive 
4 digi images from Meljen's Store

The design team were provided with some fabulous Christmas Images
So here is my design team inspirational piece
I have made an easel card, the top of the easel is round and the bottom is the normal square.  I used my grand  nesties to create the round easel, using several of the plain round ones and one of the scallops.  The base colour is mirror gold card and the red papers on top are I believe Bo Bunny and I think the St Nicks range but don't quote me on that.  I have used a My Sentiment Exactly sentiment on the inner return and a peel off gold sentiment on the main easel.  The flowers are from several sources, Wild Orchid, Hobby House, Hobby Craft and a local department store.  The ribbon is from my stash and the leaves on this one are by Prima. Pearls from the Hobby House and feathers from stash. The little gold bell charms are from the local department store.

The inner return MSE sentiment has been wet embossed, thank you to Sam for your assistance with this troublesome technique
You can just see the fine spray of gold on the flowers on this one and the two lovely gold bells.
The image has been coloured with copics.
with stickles for the bells on his harness and the movement flourishes.

Don't forget to hop over and see what my wonderful team mates have created for your further inspiration.

I would like to welcome ALL of my new followers to many by far to name individually but hope you all get a little something from following my little bit of blog land. If you have not already hopped to check out the celebration candy you can find it here, so thrilled that with another 9 more followers will need to go shopping for the 300 followers candy :)  must start thinking on the colour scheme.

Hi love this card it's a lovely easel with great colour combo, what I don't understand is ....... this is the 2nd time you said about wet embossing? do you not emboss with a darker colour then use clear embossing powders? Janet
