Bling it on!!!

And a very good evening to you all
Finally feel that I am winning the battle of the christmas cards.  The end of the list is in sight.  Still got some presents to get and most of the wrapping to do though lol.

Onto today's offering which is a bit sparkly.  The challenge set by The Stamping Boutique was to make a card using non traditional christmas colours.  Purple is my favourite colour so was an obvious choice for me.
I followed the sketch set by Sketch and Stash challenge as the layout for my card.  Most of the items used was stuff that was in my stash from last christmas.  The only new item used was the flowers.
The stamp is one from Woodware.  I bought it last year but never used it so thought it was about time it came out of its packet.  Kept the image quite simple by just adding some glitter and pearls.
Hopefully you can see the glitter effect a bit better on this closer photo.

I used Coredinations cardstock for the purple backing card and some papers and glitter card from my stash.  The little pearlescent snowflakes are actually peel offs and I thought they went quite nicely.
Added some ribbons and flowers for the finishing touch.

I would like the enter this card into the following challenges:
Sketch n Stash - challenge 76
Totally papercrafts - #95 Let It Snow
One Stop Craft Challenge - Week 160 Let It Snow
The Stamping Boutique - #21 non traditional christmas colours
Papertake - anything goes
Sweet Stamps - #44 Christmas bling

Thanks for looking.  Time for a nice cuppa and a quick catch up with blogland before I snuggle up in bed.
