Blingy tree

Are you all getting the impression that I like this stamp??? LOL Talk about get your money's worth!
I made quite a few cards using different coloured inks, some are CAS like this one, others (like the one below) are a bit more fussy!

This was stamped onto bright white pearly card and then embossed using WOW Super Fine Black Puff Ultra High embossing powder. It dried to a real raised high glossy shine and I just added a few sparkly crystals here and there on the flourish branches.
Black satin ribbon and suitably blingy buckle from Imagine DIY.

Matted onto black pearl card and then onto the white pearl base card.
Sentiment is a Papermania stamp also embossed in black.

The rain has finally stopped here and we're having a beautiful day - blue skies and only a few white fluffy clouds! makes such a change from grey and damp! 
It's a bit cold though - so it's a good excuse to sit here in the warm craft room and enjoy the sunshine ------ through the windows!!!!!
