Green Bauble

I'm now making my final few Christmas cards after a week's break visiting the Christmas Markets in Germany and France. What a wonderful trip this was - very Christmassy and we experienced some real snow - not just the 5 cm that usually brings this country to a halt!

We stayed in a lovely village called Elzach Oberprechtal in the Black Forest - when it snowed it was like being in a Christmas card setting...

Anyway - back to today's card! It's for a friend to give to her sister and she requested something traditional but with a bit of girly sparkle...

I used a Sweet Dixie bauble die, mounted on my favourite fancy backing die.This was matted onto some dark red card, then matted again on some subtly patterned green paper. To add some sparkle I used some green square gems.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Winter Wonderland - red and green
Crafting with Dragonflies - Christmas all glammed up
