Playing with NEC Stash

Good morning.
Hope you are all keeping well and those not I wish well soon.

Today I would like to share a project I made using some of my scrummy NEC stash.

Here's what I bought:

It is one of the MDF pieces I would like to share with you today.
I took my inspiration from this gorgeous plaque I saw on the Indigo Blu stand:


And here's my take on it:

Plaque Ingredients:
MDF Frame - Indigo Blu
Image: Indigo Blu 'Sleeping George'
Sentiment: Indigo Blu 'Baby's First Christmas'
White Gesso
Pink Iced Gem Acrylic Paint
Winter Dawn Gilding Flakes
Shabby White and Shabby Pink Frantage
Magenta Tint Pan Pastel
Diamond Stickles
White Berries, Snowman and Pearl Heart Pins from stash
Rolled Roses - Live Love Crafts
Hobby House Flatback Pearls

Just a quickie today as my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver is here to play.
