THE MERRY CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE #30 - SPARKLE

THE MERRY CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE!
I love making Xmas cards.
Here is my DT project for this week.
The theme for this challenge is
SPARKLE
Simple and quick make today.
Red 5.5x5.5 card base. I matted and layered with two Christmas themed designer papers.
I die cut and elegant lady in red glitter card, and added some STICKLES in Star Dust to give the appearance of frost. I added one of my favourite Christmas embellishments, a tiny piece of handmade holly in the bottom right corner. Finally I stamped a sentiment on to red card in gold ink and made a small banner.
I hope you like what I did.
Thanks for stopping by today and see you next week!!
