You Can't Beat a Bit of Glitter and Glitz for Christmas !

Happy Wednesday, hope it's a good one for you.  Today I'm sharing my DT card for this week's challenge #90 over on I Love Promarkers.  Our prize Sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen and the theme is Glitter and Glitz - how smashing is that ? 

I expect that like me, you are busy making Christmas cards, and I don't think you can ever have too much glitter and glitz on these cards.

I've used the gorgeous 'Three Little Angels' stamp from Lili of the Valley and coloured the image with Promarkers of course.  I then matted it over a layer of Almost Amethyst cardstock from Stamping Up! - slightly off-set.  To intensify the glitter and glitz effect I added Glossy Accents on the clouds, angels' wings and the stars in their hair, then sprinkled Glamour Dust glitter over the top.  The large snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and the smaller ones were cut using a Marianne's die.

The sentiment is also from LOTV and cut out with a small circle nestie.  I added extra glitz with Stardust Stickles around the edge of the image layer, on the snowflakes and around the sentiment. 

I hope you'll enter our challenge this week, it's a nice easy one I think !  Thanks for dropping by today, let me know what you think of today's card, I love receiving comments.

Not only do I love those carol singers but those snowflakes are pretty cool too! I'm planning to start some Xmas cards tomorrow -fingers crossed!
Thanks so much for your comment on my scarf, it did make me giggle! I buy my yarn online at Deramores, you can click the link on my scarf post and it'll take you straight to it. It really is a beautiful colour which I can't take the credit for as Sascha chose it!
Have a great week.
