Glitzy Blingy Bauble

My dining room table is currently a sea of craftiness as I continue with the Christmas cards, there's glitter and diamantes everywhere! I'm nearly finished now - only maybe another 12 to go so I should have them all finished by the end of November which was my aim.

Today's card is certainly glitzy. I've had some shimmery gauze material for a while which I have always wanted to use on a Christmas card so I carefully die-cut a circle of it and made a huge bauble by layering it on some dark red card and adding some red gems. I've finished off with a lovely bow I kept from some of last year's choccies and there's another card done!

The light has almost gone so I must have looked like a nutter taking a photo of this card in the garden!

I've entered this in the following challenges:

I think the general feel is clean and simple enough for the 'glamour and glitz' challenge at Less Is More and there's certainly enough bling for the 'bring on the bling' challenge at Allsorts Challenge Blog.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend...
