Embellish This!

Hello Everyone!!  It's the first Friday of the month and that means it's Power Poppy's Power and Spark Challenge time!!  This month the hostess is ME!!!  I've made it an ultra easy one - EMBELLISH THIS!!  Buttons, Pearls, Rhinestones, Sequins, Ribbon, Brads, Eyelets, Micro Beads....use them simply or in interesting ways.  Don’t have any?  Make your own!  Wrong colour – use your markers to colour them to match your project!  Have some fun and play along and don't forget you have the chance to WIN a Stamp Set of your choice!!!  :) 

I've used this fabby new image from Cozy Cupfuls - those Christmas ornaments were begging to be blinged up!!  :)

I've used a base of red, layered with cream and topped with two pieces of Home for the Holidays DP.  Across this is some ivory crochet lace, topped with red satin ribbon.  I've stamped this adorable tree in a cup image from Cozy Cupfuls in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (G24, G28, G94, G99, E50, E51, E53, E55, R00, R12, R20, R22, R24, R29, Y21, Y26, Y28, YR30, W1).  It's been cut out with Large Oval Nestabilities and matted with red cut with A2 Divine Eloquence and popped up on foam tape

I've Embellished with a Prima Poinsettia flower, a bling flourish (underneath the flower), added red pearls to the tree for the Christmas ornaments and then sprinkled a few rhinestones for good measure!!  :)  Nothing like a bit of Christmas BLING!!!
