Clean & Simples at Crafty Cardmakers

Its a Clean & Simples theme over at Crafty Cardmakers this fortnight and the team have made some absolutely beautiful samples! I must say as much as love my papers and embellishments sometimes its just nice to do something straightforward and let the image do all the work :)
Its not actually my turn to play this week but I couldn't resist once my new Lili of the Valley stamps arrived and I saw that Secret Crafter, Sparkle Creations and Paper Players had the same theme so I'm playing too! This is my first one of the year too :)

Image is by Lili of the Valley and is coloured with promarkers, Ive used 2 shades of blue around the edge then the blender pen to merge them. Kept very simples with this one and added sakura stardust clear pen on the tinsel to make it sparkly, glaze pen on the baubles and stickles glue around the edge of the card. Mounted on gold and white cardstock with a couple of iridescent sticky gems :)

That's lovely, Vix. Now I know what all the LOTV comments were about. (I didn't look before - spent enough money lately.)
