Of course I hung my stockings

....they needed the air!  Don't you just love this Stella quote!


and after an elegant looking front of the card - here is the quote on the inside:


I am entering my card into the following challenges:

I used some papers from a paper pad that came free with a cardmaking magazine.  The circle and the oval are the front and reverse of the same paper.  I matted using some gold cardstock.  I also used gold Peel-Craft border stickers and some gold ribbon to keep the gold theme running through the card.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and coloured with copic markers and then glitzed up with Stickles - Star Dust.  I added three white pearls on some of the dots on the oval shape.

Here is the sketch that I worked from:
