No ink!

No stamping here as I decided I'd better keep my fingers ink free as I am at another Prize Presentation tomorrow - looks bad doesn't it handing out shiny Silverware and sparkling Crystal with dreadful ink stained fingers!!!

A little bit of recycling done - I love this image which I rescued a couple of years ago from the 'saved pics box'. It started out it's life on a pale blue winter themed card.
It was soft and ethereal.... I hope I've made it bold and 'stand out'!!!!

The background card does actually have sparkly spots on it - (bad light AGAIN so I had to use the flash)- and I layered it onto some red card.
I embossed a frame onto a scrap of card and placed the image on it, before rounding off the top corner and layering onto the same red.

The bling is from my stash and I added even more with the buckle for the ribbon - not satisfied with that I then splattered some glitter glue onto it by flicking a paintbrush!

A few punched snowflakes and a Christmas sentiment (also recycled) finishes it off.
(Definitely not one for the post box - have to be hand delivered!)

It is a lovely image Viv and all put together into a beautiful card. So pleased I'm not the only one with dodgy fingers, even when I think I've done a good clean up job I get somewhere and see someones eyes fixed on a hand with telltale signs.

Wonder how we will fare tonight ?

Beautiful image and bling, the red panels give this card an added Christmas feel and make a great contrast to all the white. It's lovely.

This is so pretty with all the bling Viv and I love that you have kept it neutral which suits the image beautifully. Hope the presentation went well and no inky fingers either. x
