oh Baubles!!!!!

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Yesterday Matt went fishing and all was quiet in the house, so as it did nothing but rain, I spent the day after the housework, in my Beach Hut.  Where I created several pieces, one I am really not sure about, but that may change as it grows on me. Although because I am not sure on it, I do need to replace it with something I do like, so will be doing that today after my shop for crafty bits :)

So what am I here for today then? Well I adored using one of the new images from Wild Rose Studio that much that I had another idea I wanted to try.  So here we go

I made a one layer Christmas Card in black and gold.
The image here is 
" Baubles" from Wild Rose Studio
Black Card, Gold pearls and Gold Embossing powders.
I love how this one turned out, don't you?

I love this card so rich yet simple think you have now nailed the CAS, the image coloured might look nice dangling on a church candle. Janet
