Christmas Rose from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning, I've got a girly Christmas themed card to share today using the new Tangled Garden stamps from Chocolate Baroque .

The background was made using one of the new M-bossabilities 'Holiday Magic' and brushed pewter Distress Stain, I really love the new metallic distress stains, they give a wonderful finish.

I decided to create a Christmas rose with the detailed flower from  'The Tangled Garden' and stamped it 3 times on to vellum with versamark ink and then embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder. I also created some leaves using the same embossing powder, this stamp sheet really has a great selection of leaves too. The centre of the flower is a crushed bottle cap with a mixure of rock candy glitter, silver microbeads and silver glitter in the centre. 

To finish off  I've added some silver ribbon from my stash and some of the beautiful Scallop Rose Lace

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge: Ribbon and Lace
Hooked on Craft: Christmas no red or green
Our daily bread: gold or silver

  2. Very striking with the bottle cap centre for the flower, all the metallic elements with the white look super. You've just reminded me of my microbeads too........
