Sepia Christmas Card

My first sepia card and definately not my last loved doing this, The design is a Sugar nellie and has been painted in Tea dye distress ink, after painting the design part of it has been layered up i.e bow, teddy and presents (doesn't show that well though) after I had finished painting I then spritzed the whole design in Glimmer mist to add the bling effect in the background the flowers were also spritzed

The card has been entered into the following challenges: Daring cardmakers who had the inspirational theme of sepia, Our Creative Corner has the theme of 12 days of Christmas.....Partridge in a pear tree, Cupcake have a christmas carol as an inspirational theme...not sure if the '12days of christmas' counts but heres hoping.Spoon full of sugar have the challenge of 'Monochrome', Papertake want christmas cards but NO red or green. The sketch for this design is over at Sketch Saturday
