Whiff of Joy GDT call - 4th entry

I have made another creation for the Whiff of Joy GDT call that Katharina is holding on her blog. This time I have made a christmas card with the beautiful Musing Melinda stamp. I love this stamp so much, it is probably my favourite actually, I just love the look on her face and her outfit! I used a gorgeous glittery paper from My Minds Eye that isn't actually a Christmas paper but I think it works well because of the colours and all that glitter!

I have stamped around the edges of my image with a Stempelglede stamp with antique linen distress ink and also distressed all the papers with the same ink. Melinda is, of course, coloured with copics and I have added glitter glue to her wings and her bracelet.

I really went to town with the flowers on this one LOL! I added a gorgeous layer of Prima poinsettias and leaves in the bottom corner along with some tiny red roses and a pearl headed pin for some extra luxury and then a white blossom and red roses in the right corner. The roses and blossom flower have been given a spritz of glimmer mist! I created a gather at each end of the crochet lace and added a diamond gem to each gather and a huge organza bow with the tails hanging behind the image to the bottom of the card.

and usual querky angle picture but what do you think of the picture below???

I found this gorgeous silk rose in my wardrobe last night and happened to put it down near my card and it looked so beautiful with it. Maybe I've found a new photo prop? Thanks for looking!
