Christmas bauble

Hi everyone...It's a couple of days or so since I made a Christmas card so here's a quick one I've made using some scraps up from my bits drawer....
 It's a small 4x4 card layered up with Merry Christmas paper which I've edged with Daisy and Dandelion red ink pad. I've added a square of green glitter card and some gold net before adding a Marianne's creatables bauble (I picked the die up in a sale earlier this week) made using a scrap of whitewash card. I've sanded it and edged with the red ink. The bow has been in my stash for years and probably came with a magazine. I used my new toy to heat set the red gems (4mm). Here's a close up of the layers...
I would like to enter this for the following:-Crafty Hazelnut - lots of layers
Pixie's Crafty Snippets - Challenge 17

Thank you for stopping by. I hope to see you again soon.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
