Christmas Sparkle

Our 2nd Challenge for November over at Try It on Tuesdays and  our theme is Christmas Sparkle. Please pop over for all the details and see what we have  all been making.

Our sponsor for this month is
Crafty-emblies, the prize is a £10 store voucher.

The main image on my card is a favourite old  Inkadinkado stamp called Christmas Dream, which  I embossed  with 'Wow' powder   This was coloured with water colours. Some white flower soft for the snow and a  sprinkling  of glitter powder, mainly on me.
One of the layers was stamped using Darkroom Door stamps. Another layer embossed in a Script folder.
The snowflake is a Spellbinders die cut.
The other additions came from my trimmings box.
All the shading is Tumbled Glass and Weathered  Wood, distress ink.

I will also be entering - Stamping Sensations  November Challenge , the theme is Traditional Christmas.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate you calling.
