CAS attempt (xmas8)

Hello to my crafty pals, you will be glad to know that we are having a little break from singing, lol (couldn't find any French hens) . Of course I will still be ever so pleased to have comments to read as I love receiving them. I can only say that I hope I visit you all now and then as my skippity brain is still playing up.  
Today I have spent my time putting preservative on wood, when I ran out of the odorless stuff I started on the smelly stuff which hasn't helped my skippity brain and the photo could certainly be better. I would love to put something else on this card, maybe a few bits of bling. 
Hoping you are all well and hugs to all who need them. 
Paper  and card - card blank is a 7x5 card, 
red card from the Papermill,
 Dies used :- Spellbinders  Labels 18 & Floral Ovals

    Beautiful card. The pearl card is lovely. If you are going to add bling, maybe small gems on the cross over points of the embossing? Otherwise, its fab as it is.

  18. Love it Flora and candles are as cool as french hens! LOL!

    I would not personally add anything there is bling on it already less is more it is classy and elegant as it is. But as a suggestion some pva glue dots in berry red as holly berries on the cross over bits would look elegant too.

  20. Flora. Your card is lovely and classy at the same time, I would leave it as it is, it doesn't need anything else on it and I think it would spoil it.
