Figgy Pudding!

Hi, this is my very first post! I love to craft and mum is just introducing me to the world of blogging. Currently I am recovering from an operation on my nose, so got a bit of time off from uni. to get creative.

Love these stamps by which I bought from Birmingham NEC last november. I stamped them onto card and coloured them with promarkers. For the topping, I added gold and white glitter and backed them onto gold papers with different textures.

I used card from mums stash for the backing which I put through an x cut paper crimper. I added a gold peel off across the join and chose three different textured ribbons for the left hand side. I added the images at angles and prima flowers with a different brad in the centre of each one. I added a christmas greeting. To finish, I added a holly brad to the sentiment and a wooden holly to the top corner. I glittered this up using red stickles.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges: -
