Welcome to Thursday here on my little bit of Blogland.  It's time for a new challenge over on the Cute Card Thursday Blog and this week our challenge theme is 'Sparkles' with our prize sponsored by Heather's Hobby Heaven.

For my DT card I decided to use one of my newly acquired stamps to create a Christmas card - well, there's not many weeks left until the 'Big' day, and my stock of cards is woefully inadequate !

Sadly you will have to take my word for it that my card has lots of sparkle on it, as usual it is soooo difficult to capture the sparkle in a photograph.

The stamp is from Stampendous and was on my shopping list for the vacation after I'd seen it in a magazine - I just love this image.

I stamped the image first on to a piece of kraft coloured cardstock, then stamped again on white card.  After cutting out the central oval element stamped in white I used my Promarkers to colour the picture.  Whilst cutting out the central oval I carefully fussy cut around the holly sprig in top left.

Using dark brown cardstock and a piece of paper from a Graphic 45 paperstack I layered the whole thing up, finishing with the coloured oval stamped on white.  I then added Stickles all over the snowy areas and dusted over the wet Stickles with Glamour Dust for added sparkle.  Finally I added more Stickles around the edge of central oval, used a red Waco Pearlmaker Pen over the holly berries and Glossy Accents on the leaves.

I hope you've enjoyed today's project, do pop over to the CCT blog to check out all the amazing creations from the rest of the DT.
