Happy New Year

Hello everyone!

Have a fantastic New Year with your loved ones this 2018!

And may it be your best year yet! Thanks to my blog readers, I had a year of blessings beyond my wildest imagination. Yes, YOU! You have read my blog, encouraged me, challenged me. Thank you for always being a part of my Crafting journey. 

This time I am presenting simple but an elegant card! 

Do you know what I used for creating these textures, just guess! Hmmm, I used my broken sieve:)

I started with a white CS and applied texture paste using this sieve. Then I sprayed Marsala color and sprinkled some water spray and removed the extra color for a soft look. 

On the top, I just blended candied apple DI and added some splatters. In result, I achieved the gorgeous background! I wanted to create some snow effect feel to the background!

The die used here is out of black CS and I die cut it 3 times and trim some of the branches according to my need. Applied diamond stickles dots to the end of each branch to create berries. Stamping some pine bough branches.
The sentiment is heat embossed with glitter gold. Paring it with a black CS and added the stripes of gold glitter sheet. And finally attached a double color handmade bow.

Supplies used:
Cardstocks: Heavyweight black CS, white CS, gold glitter sheet
Stamps: Poinsettia Peace from Poppy stamps, Big Holiday Set of 3 from Inspired by Stamping
Dies: Bamboo Sticks from die-namites; Rectangles from Tattered lace
Embossing Powder: Metallic Gold sparkle from Wow
Stickels: Diamond stickles from Ranger
Distress ink: Candied Apple
Spray and Texture paste: Marsala spray and Texture paste from Papericious
Red designer ribbon from Inspired by stamping
Golden glittery ribbon from my stash

Would love to enter my card in the following challenges:
