So cute!

This week the new challenge at Charisma Cardz is Cutesy so I inked up one of my cutest LOTV stamps - James Bear - wrapped in tinsel and coloured it with my Tria markers from Letraset adding a substantial amount of ultra fine glitter in green and gold on the tinsel! I also used some glossy accents on the baubles to give a bit of extra dimesion. I die cut the frame and distressed it with my handy nail file (for acrylic nails - they're rougher than the average emery board and perfect for distressing). I combined the image with papers from My Mind's Eye Holly Jolly set and added a sentiment from Stampin Up.
