M4TW #50!

This card is for the 50th Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge. The challenge this week was to use digi paper (something I've never done), use ribbon in some way other than the usual bow or knot (oh no, I almost always have a bow), and use bling (ahhh, that part is easy). Thanks to Christi, I have some fabulous digi paper that came from Shabby Princess. If it looks familiar, I'm not surprised (since I copied from her), but it seemed to be perfect for what I had in mind.

This is the Nutcracker from the November release at Paper Makeup Stamps. Isn't he handsome? He's colored with copics and I used a gelly roll glitter pen in Copper Star on his buttons, epaulets, and hat. He's cut with the Labels Four nestie and the edge is smudged with Color Box prussian blue fluid chalk ink. I used 1/8" ribbon to create the "star/snowflake/sunburst" embellie and added a Kaiser Craft pearl to the center.

I hope everyone celebrating Thanksgiving this week has wonderful day. Don't eat too much!! :)
