Christmas Baubles

I'm on a roll today! I've managed to make a card for two challenges, 2 Red Bananas - Banana Split Sunday and Colour Create. I did enjoy doing this card despite the fact I had to do the image three times. Jolly thing!! Think it's ok now. Right onto what I used. Alison Ellis papers(yummo), Bazzill cardstock, gold paper from my stash, Kaisercraft and Prima flowers, red bling and twinkling H2O's. Oh yeah, mustn't forget, my Martha Stewart branch punch too. Love that punch. lol I embossed the image which is a stamp called Christmas Baubles by Artee Stamps in gold then coloured with the h2o's. I'm not very good at using h2o's but I don't use a water brush anymore. I bought myself a couple of very fine synthetic brushes which seem to work much better for me.
Thanks for looking, hope you like my attempt at these two challenges.

Hey Leigh - I'm sorry I haven't been by in a while - I've been kind of ugh lately and haven't created or blogged much, but I'm hoping to get back to it soon. I love your card here - the colors are outstanding - awesome job. Thanks for passing on the challenge sites - I haven't heard of them before and know I will visit them often. Talk to you soon.
