Frillie Millies Pudding Card

Good Evening to you all,

I hope you are all well and ready to enjoy your weekend.

A quick post tonight. This is the Christmas card for the 4th week of the year - so far, so good - I'm keeping up with my intention to make one a week. For this one I chose a digi stamp from Pink Petticoat, Frillie Millies Pudding. I had it all ready and coloured in from last year, just didn't use it then. I knew I had the perfect paper in a Nitwit digital collection called 'Cookin' Cookies Too', Cookin in Ivory and Enjoy in Brown.

Frillie Millie is coloured with Promarkers and blinged up with red glitter. I cut a ribbon with the Enjoy paper and edged with white faux stitching. The corner decoration is made up of red satin ribbon, holly leaves punched with an X-cut embossing punch from a spare piece of green paper and then given the red glitter treatment. The red rosebuds are from  Wild Orchid Crafts and the last thing added were the green and red flat-backed pearls (more bling).

The inside and back are decorated with offcuts of the paper.

I plan to enter this for the following challenges:

My Crafty Outlook's Christmas Challenge   - theme - let's see some bling.

Snoflake's Christmas Card Challenge on Docrafts.
I said would be quick - I have a cup of tea getting cold so I'm off to get it.
