Bling it Up

The recipe over at Less is More this week is ...


I'm not a very blingy person but I don't mind a bit of sparkle at Christmastime!




I used the Stampin Up Bauble punch on some textured white CS - added a piece of Christmas fabric behind it then layered it onto gold and red miri card.  The sentiment is also Stampin Up, gold embossed.









Thought I'd also share the beautiful sky we had this morning ...



Thanks for visiting - have a great week everyone.

Fantastic bauble and love how you have used fabric instead of paper to the backing can see the texture even in the photo, and the bling just add that finishing touch- but then I would say that wouldn't I :-0 x
