Baubles for the Christmas Card Club!

Hello to You All, hoping this Sunday is finding on tip top form.

Another fortnight has passed and it's time for the members of the Christmas Card Club to share their lovely cards. Where does the time go?????. Anyway, this time around Margaret  is our hostess and she would like to see baubles, I think we all love baubles, I know our wee cat does.
Here is what I've come up with;
My first card is made using one of Imagination Crafts beautiful stencils and the wonderful Starlight paints, with a silver, black and teal colour theme.
This is a lovely Woodware image and my design is inspired by a card found on Pinterest, ( I will add the crafter's name when I find it), embossed in Wow gold powder, twice, and then I cut out a couple of the flowers and decoupaged them and added gold gems to the centre.
Another Woodware stamp and coloured with SN pens, sticking to shades of lilac colour theme, embossed Centura Pearl card, a few clear gems and a little bow.
I have to say I love Woodware stamps, I've bought a few over the last few weeks and they are lovely to colour.

So that's it for this challenge and a big thank you to Margaret for choosing this theme, I have enjoyed it. My Christmas card box is fairly getting full now.

Incredibly winding up here this morning, and last night we had a thunder storm, with huge flashes of lightening. Some Summer me thinks, in fact there is a distinct Autumnal feel about the morning air.

Before I go just  wanted to say thank you for the lovely comments on my Friday Oldie card,  you are all so kind.

Have a lovely day and see you  soon.

Lovely cards Kate and I especially like the second one. The white and gold together give it a really classy feel and I love the way that you've decoupaged the Poinsettias as it gives your card dimension. The coloured gems give your card the perfect finish. Crafty hugs, Sandra X

Good for you at having 3 more beauties to add to your Christmas card stash. Each one is so very pretty, it's hard to say which I liked the best. Love #2 with the poinsettias, and also the sparkle of #1's ribbons and ornaments' design. Love the non-traditional colors & modern design of #3 very much too. TFS & Hugs.
