Dream Valley Challenge #187 Pearls or Gems

Good morning, my lovelies! I hope you're all keeping well. We have a new Challenge at Dream Valley - use Pearls or Gems.

I may have gonne a bit over the top with the gems on my Christmas card! But can you have too much bling at Christmas? I don't think so!

I used a Spellbinders 6 x 6 die for the background, the centre is in the shape of their Labels One and I used a Decorative Labels One die cut in patterned paper to cover it. Sadly, it seems that the Labels One dies are no longer available.

The papers are from Dovecraft's The Magic of Christmas 6 x 6 pad. The background paper has wreaths on it, and I like how bits of the wreaths peep through the trellis. The sentiment is from Lil' Inkers All the Christmas You'll Ever Need stamp set (also, sadly, out of print.)

I used 3 sizes of clear gems from stash, going from the largest in the middle to the tiniest at the edge.

Go and see my teamies' gorgeous creations and join in the Challenge!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Not over the top with the bling at all! I didn't know the labels one had been discontinued. (I get aggravated at S/B - they discontinue so many great dies, and come up with so many that I don't think are as pretty nor as versatile either!!!) Love the way you've used the pretty paper and design of the die and the rhinestones sparkle beautifully over this mosaic background. I like how you've embossed the sentiment in gold too. TFS
