Colour Create 26 - Ruby, Cream and Gold - Option Gems

Hi everyone, hope you're all well. This is a scheduled post as I'm not around for a few days, hopefully this and tomorrow's will appear. Our challenge on Colour Create this time is my choice and I picked Ruby, Cream and Gold with an option of gems. Our sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamp. I hope you like the colours and I look forward to visiting you soon to see your gorgeous creations. My DT friends have made some absolutely superb cards and I'm happy to say that they all enjoyed the colours too.

I made a card and gift bag set which are cut from dark red Bazzil card. The bag was cut on the Cricut and then after stamping randomly with a Stempelglede grunge flower stamp in metallic gold ink was glued together, decorated with cream half pearls, a sticky back gem motif and some pearl covered gold ribbon for the handle. I did the same with the card and then edged them both with the metallic gold ink pad. See you tomorrow (I hope) with my Dare U2 Digi card. TFL. Chris x

Oh wow, these are just gorgeous Chris. I wondered how you took the photograph? Did you use any special equipment? I'm really curious as you can't see any background, just some shadow from the bag and card. It looks so proessional, any hints or tips would be very gratefully received!
