DMC - It's a Wrap!

Hehehe! Still continuing the Christmas theme with the challenges! There is something I really like about this Pink Petticoat backing paper - not something I would normally use for Christmas, but as soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I was going to do with it!

The challenge for this weeks Daring Cardmakers is:

It’s a Wrap
No, not the kind stuffed with Chicken & Cesar Salad or the woolly kind you put around your shoulders to keep you warm, mind you, the way our summer is going I think we could all do with one of those!I would like you to give your card a coat made of acetate, vellum or anything for that matter.As long as it ‘wraps’ around the outside of your card, anything goes!

The paper is the black collection from Pink Petticoat - Doodle-icious Christmas Rainbow Collection, printed at the default setting. I've lightly inked the edges of the card with silver stamping ink and the ribbon I bought a while ago from Clark Craft supplies - its actually sheer black organza with little sparkly bits (the photo doesn't really show it!) And the fairy lights have been cut from my Quickutz die using metallic card, glued to the fine wire and then sparkling gems added as it seemed a bit flat.

Surprisingly quick to make!
