Christmas topiary

Good morning and Happy Friday! I have a quick post this morning as I am doing this from work...sshhh...don't tell anyone k?

Do any of you have Nina Brackett's new set she illustrated for Gina K? Lord of the Season is the name of the new set. I love this little Christmas topiary and and couldn't wait to make a Christmas card with it.

I stamped the image on white pure luxury paper with tuxedo black ink and colored it with copics. I added some shimmer with spica glitter pens and also added crystal lacquer to the cardinal, heart and star. Red pearls were added for the tree ornaments. I cut it out and layered it on red and silver paper which was cut out using the petite oval nestibilities.
I created shimmer background paper with the Cuttlebug's Victoria's ef and my Sakura Glitter pen. Here is a link for a tutorial on the Shimmering Background Paper.

I apologize that the sentiment is blurry. Not sure how I managed that because the rest of the card does not look that blurry. I guess that will teach me for taking photo's at night huh?
Have fabulous Friday!
