Red Bauble

The prompt for Day 25 at Beccy's Place Month long holiday challenge is the letter V. 
I have chosen Vellum.

The card started off with the metallic red bauble central panel which has been recycled from a card that I have received. I have added gold peel off stickers between the dotted lines, a red ribbon bow and a small diecut sentiment tag. More gold has been added to the frame and lots of gems and pearls to embellish the bauble and flowers.

On the red card base I have added a panel of holly patterned vellum paper. As this paper is translucent you can see the red base through this so it adds a bit more colour to it. The corners are embellished with metallic gold thick cardstock stickers.

Card Details :-

Size - 6" x 6"
Embellishments - gems, pearls, cardstock stickers, ribbon bow, gold stickers
