James Decks The Halls for Christmas

Today I pulled out the Lili of the Valley stamp James Deck the Halls to play with.  I love all these LOTV Bears.  I stamped him on white CS with Memento Tuxedo Black and Colored with Copics E30,33,34,35, G0000,05, YG09, Y23,46, YG09, R22,24,27,C0.   I also used a Gold Glitter Pen, Gold Liquid Pearls, Silver Stickles, Wink of Stella, and Black Glaze pen.  I cut the image with a Nesties Circle die and placed on a Red Scalloped circle cut with Nesties Die.  Using a Red Card Base, I added a panel of Pattern Paper from American Crafts Hollyday pad and a Red Organza ribbon with Metallic Gold threads.  I topped the ribbon with Merry Christmas cut in Metallic Gold CS with Cheery Lynn Dies and finished with Red Rhinestones. I had made a red bow but decided to not add to keep card flat for mailing.  I do wish the sparkle and shine showed better on the photo, especially the silver tinsel.
