SpiegelMom Scraps Christmas Bloghop

Christmas is only 24 days away here in New Zealand which TOTALLY excites me!
AND we are having the SpiegelMom Scraps bloghop starting today too.  So very auspicious day all round really :)


Here is my hop card....


I started by layering my papers and then sewing the top layer and mat on my sewing machine with gold thread.  Originally Santa was a square layer too but you couldn't see all the stars I cut on my silhouette from transparency and sewed to the card and filled with delish sequins and stars.
I have used Rockin Red Stardust and Cinnamon & Sugar Sequin Mix from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store.  I then added the ribbon and bow to the card and stamped and glued my sentiment.
Then I fussy cut my image which is called "December 26th" and is from The Paper Shelter.  I have used the precoloured version.

And here is a close up of my stars....

Thanks loads for dropping by and remember to join in the hop!

Fabulous card Louise! The stars filled with sequins look brilliant as does the whole card design. Love it!
Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, it was great of you to visit me. I've had my MS since my early teens and have had secondary progressive MS since I was 32yrs when I was finally diagnosed. I'm 46 now and craft and blog when I can. I hope your cousin starts having more good than bad days and gets a treatment that works for her. Thanks again for your visit :). Debra x
