Hanglar 'Congratulations' card

 Hello folks!!  I am so sorry that I haven't been around much lately.  The festive season is keeping me on my toes this year.  I'm hoping to be able to catch up with you all later on this month. 
 I made this card for the December Scrapology card challenge which this month is all about 'leaves'.  I dug out my favourite Hanglar and Stanglar stamp and coloured it with alcohol markers.  The background paper started off life as a sheet of Brenda Pinnick paper.  I stamped over it with the large swirly flower and painted with Mica paints.  I then scrunched it up, flattened it out and spritzed it with pearl and silver Mica sprays.  More scrunching and spritzing on the purple layer too.
 I added the sheer patterned ribbon, Prima velvety leaves and clear beads.  I just love the gorgeous texture the Prima leaves bring to the design which contrasts beautifully with the clean shiny beads.  I die cut the letters from gold mirri paper using my Go-Kreate alphabet dies.  I added glitter to the characters wings and the flowers for a finishing touch.
 The prize for this months card challenge is a fabulous Kaisercraft set from the Cockadoodledoo range.  Hop on over to find out all the details and be inspired by the gorgeous cards created by my fellow DT.  I hope you can join in with the fun.
Ciao for now!

Love what you have done with the BP backing paper, really lush and shimmery. I was about to ask where you got it and straight away your post told me, lol
