PTT #41- Bling!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to another Party Time Tuesdays challenge!  This week:  BLING!  To start my card off, I colored this adorable Sparkle Creations (Caroling Josh) image with my Copics and added a whole bunch of dots to the border with my Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Light Blue.  Next, I used up a handful of scraps from my Christmas stash in colors that matched Joshua's outfit.  I had originally planned to use a lot more of that vintage piano music paper (it really IS vintage!  I got it at a thrift store, and I didn't have to ink it up at all to give it that aged look!  yay!), but I ended up using just a bit of it to make a small embellishment to fill that empty space.  I punched out a circle, and then, to mimic the holly on his book, I used some leaves found in my stash and added two red gems.  I know the leaves aren't exactly holly-like, but it's close enough for me!  :)  To finish off my card, I added two more gems a little bigger in size to balance out the card.

I hope you'll have a minute to play along with us, using "bling" is so much fun, especially for holiday cards!  Link up here:
