Christmas in March 2

I am feeling a bit down today, Weathers rubbish so cannot get out in the garden, changing over thyroid drugs is making me feel tired and achy. What can I do to cheer myself up?????? Glitter! and christmassy stuff is the answer!! Also I was wondering what to do for this weeks Less is More challenge a sketch, I like sketches, so this is what I came up with after a bit of a play with the Wizard and my stash of christmassy things.
I used: Pearlescent card blank from stash (I didn't have any DL blanks suitable)
Spellbinders Wizard and nestabilities,
heirloom ornaments and snowflakes Quickutz embossing folder, one of my favourites
Papermania navy sparkling trims.
I would like to enter it in the following challenges:

  1. Great Christmas card. Nice to see something non flowery. Love Sheila (Cyprus)

  2. Great to see christmas cards this early. Fab card and liking the shape of your bauble:-)

  3. Hooray, your card is here at last... well persevered Donna!
    It's lovely too, I'm sorry you didn't have any DL card blanks... but they can easily be made from a sheet of A4 ... it just takes 2/3 of a sheet.
    I love that embossing and your ornament looks lovely and festive too!
    A super card!

  18. Hi there, your card is lovely. I really like the blue of the ornament. You posted a comment on my less is more card on my blog asking about the stamp I used. It is from Impression Obsession and is called Feminine Form (E6402 is the number on the stamp). Hope the info is useful. Sarah
