Fashionista - Blue Christmas - Saturated Canary Nutcracker

Happy Monday Blogging Friends,

First I would like to say hello to my new followers, I seem to have gain a few just recently, don't be afraid to say hello I love to chat.  Also thank you to my regular followers, I always love to see your comments come into my email box. 

Today sees a new challenge over at Fashionista and this month our theme is Blue Christmas and we are sponsored by the totally amazing, fabulous Kristen of Saturated Canary fame.  She very kindly gave the DT images to work with and I chose Nutcracker - what a beauty. 

I decided to make a card for my niece - I used a couple of  Marianne dies namely large Christmas tree
and Poinsettia, kraft card and the paper is a digi from Barely Mine, together a beautiful bow from The Ribbon Girl.  

Close up of the Poinsettia with a lovely diamonte brad with blue diamonte centre also from Ribbon Girl - it is beautiful but hard to photograph.  I cut the poinsettia out of white card, sprayed with adhesive and scattered Diamond Dust over it. 

Nice card???? but the surprise comes when you untie the ribbon and open the card.  

I made a box to hold 4 little Lindt teddy bears - sorry there is only 3 but I ate one... it has been replaced since the photograph - , I used an oval spellbinder die to cut the oval and covered with acetate - I decorated the oval with Pearl deco pen and the pearls were perfect :), but then I closed the card.... duh... so not quite as perfect as they were at the beginning. 

Picture of the gift tag - which again is Marianne. 

Hope you enjoy my chocolate card, I have made a few of these now.
