Beccy, this looks more like a framed holiday decor item than a card - it's absolutely stunning! The fancy frame (more F's!), decoupage layers, and beautiful bow with bling combine to make this a real showpiece! Bravo!

Teresa said...

This is so pretty! Wish my "fussy cutting" looked as neat as yours---sometimes mine seems to be more like "fuzzy cutting"!

I must admit Fussy cutting is one of my favourite 'things' in crafting, it's so relaxing and especially when a decoupage is involved.

Such a gorgeous card Beccy! Love that background die you used and your fussy cutting is perfect for this image! That buckle with your pretty ribbon really sets the card off nicely. Silver Bells is one of my favorite Christmas songs. Maybe because I sang it in high school and strolled around the stage in period costumes. So much fun!

LOVE your image and layers, the colours, colouring and dimension delight, as does your shiny ornate frame ... FANCY and FABULOUS!
I love fussy cutting my images, my hands don't like it but I really enjoy how it allows for even more creative options and dimension :)
