CES DT Card - Roses & Ribbons!




Are you counting down the days till christmas? I should be as I,ve only made 1 or 2 cards and am so behind so couldnt resist using this gorgeous new stamp called "Christmas Bears Present" from LOTV to use for our new challenge this week over at the CES Challenge Blog.
Thankyou to all who entered last weeks challenge, so many gorgeous creations. Pop on over to the CES Challenge Blog and see if you are the winner or made the Top 3!
This week the lovely Julie has chosen the theme "Roses & Ribbons"
I have coloured with Spectrum Noir Pens and used Basic Grey Nordic Holidays Papers. Lots of Sparkle using Crystal Stickles and a Gold Viva Pearl Pen, then lots of pretty embellishments added. I'll be adding a sentiment to this card once I know who I'm sending it to.

Do check out what beautiful cards the rest of the DT have made and we'd love it if you'd join in this weeks challenge.
