I need to make a few more cards and not much time, so I have gone for a CAS design but I must admit, I think my cards are all going a bit that way recently :-)

I used this super cute 'Have a Ball' image which is the stamp of the month for Dec 2013 :-) Poor Monica has dropped a bauble but how many of you could balance 5 on your nose ,,, not many I bet !! haha :-) I masked the image and stamped the lovely background design with gold ink before painting over the baubles with a wink of stella pen,, lovely and glittery IRL.

I finished with a strip of  Kelly Purkey Washi Tape ( LOVE this stuff ! ) and some twine with a gold thread running through it

I love making these coordinating envelopes, makes a simple card a bit extra special I think :-)

We are taking a break for the busy holiday season, so
