Wobbly Figgy Pudding Merriest Wishes Card

What a miserable, grey, wet and chilly day!  Something cheery is called for and what better than a fun card that has a wobbly Christmas pudding on it?!

I stamped the pudding on watercolour paper, used inks and a water brush to colour the image, fussy cut the pudding and added Glossy Accents to the holly berry.  I thought it would be fun to cut some pieces off the bottom of the pud to look like it's being eaten!  I made a 5 3/4" square Real Red CS card base and added the patterned paper and Garden Green CS strips.  I stamped and die cut the sentiment label and popped that up.  I die cut the doily and mat layer and attached the pudding to the doily with a wobble spring.  I stamped the spoon and fork, coloured them with a silver pen, fussy cut them and popped them up.  To complete the card front I applied red gems to the sentiment label.

Here's the inside and the envelope.
