Christmas Card Club - Baubles

This fortnight Kerry of  KAYC666 chose the theme of baubles. What a fun theme! I love to decorate my tree and when the girls were still at home, we had two trees!

This card is for one of my younger friends...so I chose those Owl themed Christmas paper. The ladies I crop with are all the age of my daughters so they keep me young!  I even liked the words Jolly Holiday in the swirl beside the owls, so I kept that as my sentiment.
I don't know why but the colour is off a bit. The background paper is sort of lime green and the larger bauble is red and link!
I covered all the little baubles on the tree with small red diamonds. Not sure if I should have added more of them on the little dots beside the swirls. I didn't want to take away from the pretty 3D ornaments so I exercised restraint!

Recipe
Card and Envelope - from my stash, originally Michaels 5 1/2 square textured card
DP - Carta Bella 6 x 6 Merry and Bright
Ornament Embellishments - K and Co ( from my stash)
Bling - from my stash (I managed to use the last of these teensy red diamonds...I will miss them
String - from my stash (via the thrift shop)

I am entering this card in the following challenges
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets. The diamonds and the silver string  were my only snippets!
2. CHNC Extra - must be Christmas
3. Christmas Card Club - baubles

Hi there Scrappymo - I think your card is just perfect for one of your younger friends. I love the colours as well, different to the normal Christmas colours, which is really refreshing. I did smile when you said you used restraint with the little red gems - I am so glad to find someone else out there just like me!

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

Really cute card!
That happens to me sometimes, too, where colors are off in photos. Occasionally I can adjust it in photo editing program, but not always!
