It's an Art Deco Christmas

These two cards are part of a larger order for personalised Christmas cards.  The customer wanted several art deco Christmas cards, not a style I do that often, but I have to say that I rather enjoyed colouring these images and going a bit wild with the glitter!
 The images are a Papermania stamp, they have been coloured with Promarkers, and highlighted with metallic gel pens and lots of Glamour Dust.
The papers are from Craftwork Cards and are just beautiful, they're pearlised and foiled, the paper with writing on has the words from Christmas carols, the photos don't do them justice.
I computer generated the sentiments in an art deco style font, it's called Broadway, if you're ever looking for one yourself.
To finish off my glam cards, I've added Christmas ribbon, a bow, large pearls, gems and a gem and pearl encrusted corner embellishment.


I'm entering these card in the following challenges -
Allsorts - #229 - Ribbon and Bows (bottom card)
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - #22 - Bling It Up (bottom card)
Addicted to Stamps and More -#67 - Make Your Mark (top card)
The Paper Shelter - #133 - 2 Colours - Red and Black (bottom card)
