Red and Pink Bauble Card

A Christmas card today, featuring a stamped bauble and some shimmer spray that gave me Shrek hands as I unclogged the bottle to get the spray to work!
 The holly was stamped with a Bo Bunny stamp, all the rest of the stamps used were from a Papermania, Home for Christmas set, including the sentiment.  Once the background stamping was done (Using Evergreen Bough and Twisted Citron Distress Inks), I gave it a spritz of Cosmic Shimmer spray in Mint Green.  The sentiment and bauble string were stamped in black archival ink.  I stamped the bauble in red dye ink onto pink card, and fussy cut, leaving a small border, then stuck to the card, raising it up slightly with dimensional glue.
I used an embossing folder to add some Christmas text to the background and injected a little more colour by using red and pink to mat my layers.
The final touches were to add a small bow where the bauble string meets the edge of the topper and a gem to the bauble string.
