October Challenge Christmas cards Facebook Group

Hello Everyone and welcome back to my blog!
Today I am sharing with you my Design Team inspiration card that I created for the October challenge over at the Christmas cards Facebook group and the theme is “Anything goes option Bling”.

On a Kraft card base I adhered a piece of black card stock which I tore the edges, on top of it I adhered a piece of music paper which I tore from an old music book that I discovered at a Flea Market. I love the fact that it’s naturally distressed in color, it seems to be a very old music book.
I then added some glue on some spots of the card base and adhered the metal sheet in gold color with a dry brush. I just love the effect it creates!
The corner die is by Spellbinders from the Perfect Petals set.
The birds die is by Precious Marieke and it’s named Spirited Birds.
I created a sentiment banner with black card stock and I white embossed the sentiment which is from a set from a crafty magazine.
I watercolored a bunch of leaves on watercolor cardstock with Prima confections watercolors and then fussy cut them. I chose two of them and added them on the back of the birds. As a final touch I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops in White blizzard.
