Christmas card Club baubles

The other Margaret (Dutchess) picked the theme for this fortnight at the Christmas card club - baubles

I have embossed dark pink card with baubles one of the Cuttlebug embossing folders from the Winter Wonderland set of 6 folders.  Stamped Happy Christmas, cut out and layered on top.  Added star brad.
Printed Star Stampz Christmas elf ornament large and coloured her with Prismacolor pencils and glitter pen on the stars.  Then scanned it and reduced in size and printed again,  Cut out and layered on top.
Added rhinestones.  Layered all onto pink card.

If you would like to see the cards made by the other members of the Christmas club their blogs are listed down the left side of my blog  Their cards will be on later tonight.

I would like to add this card to the following:
