Commissioned Christmas Card



A colleague wanted a card making for her husband for Christmas.  They've only been married for a few months but together 22 years!!!  I used in an image from a Michelle Marsden Christmas Triple Treasures CD and decoupaged it up on on a number of levels of matting and layering.  As my friend likes her jewellery I ordered some rather glitzy stick on gems - I nearly had to abort this idea as I bought them over a week ago and they only arrived tonight and I wanted to take the card in tomorrow.  I've finished the card off with some sentiments made on the computer, an insert done in Word, the gems of course and some beautiful organza ribbon.

This card fits the criteria for the following challenges:

Pink Elephant - Winter and/or Christmas

Sophisticats - Christmas Theme

Joanna Sheen's Forum Monthly Challenge - Snow

One Stop Craft - Christmas Love.
