3 in 1

Hello everyone, today I am joining forces of my 3 hobbies, here...nails, embroidery, and card making....there is one more hobby which cannot be included, my love for cooking though *wink*

Ok I chose a white base card and a white front panel too. I masked the front with a circle and painted with my OPI glittery lavender nail paint, and then on top of it another purple shimmery coat also from OPI. Once the nail paint was dry, I pierced some holes to add stitches, and sequins. I chose a shaded thread to add the stitches and lavender colored sequins. A simple sentiment to finish off, with a scatter of nail paint here and there. A bow added at the top using the same thread. I like it, it is shimmery yet simple, I hope you like it too!

I switched on the flash to click this picture, just to show the metallic shimmer on the bauble.

 I thought of making a card using the metallic shades in my nail paint collections.

Less is more

The theme is non-traditional Christmas cards, and I chose purple shades to do this card.

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind  feedback :) Have a great day!
