Grunge Christmas card

This Is a card that My Daughter asked me to make for a Friend , She is very into her grunge look Loves purple and lace, so a modern image suitable for a Christmas Card was what I needed.
The Image came from the web, And I would like to say thanks Anne for finding some great images for me to choose from. I had some Black lace background paper on the PC , I took this into my graphics Programme and changed it to Purple.
I mounted this onto Silver mirri card, and also Added some purple velvet ribbon and a bow to this mount .This background mount was then added to the purple pearlescent card,
I then did the same with the topper image and mounted it onto the same mirri card.
To this I added an acetate jacket , This was made slightly larger so that when stuck to the back of the mount it formed a dome at the front, To this I added some gold stars.
I then made a Christmas tag using the mirri card, background paper and Acetate with some added peel offs,
I then threaded some pearl beads onto a wire, threaded some thin tinsel through the tag, and wound the wired beads around the tinsel to finish off

Here is a close up of the tag and you can just see the raised Dome surrounding the topper
