Glittery, Snowy Christmas :)

I've made another Christmas card...I guess by the time I'm finished my list of Chrissy cards for the year, I'll be well over them, but for now I'm really getting into the Christmas spirit :)  I LOVE Christmas and usually put the tree up (a little one these days as we don't have kids at home anymore) on 1st December but this year I think I'll put it up a bit early...we're babysitting the grandbabies next weekend and I thought they'd enjoy it if we do the tree and decorations while they're here.

This is the very cute Cherry Kisses with Christmas Tree from Pollycraft. I've used very non-traditional Christmas colours for the first time and I can tell you it was VERY hard to put this card together...nothing seemed to 'work' for me...maybe next time I'll stick to red & green lol!  I've used Makeesha's sketch for the Inkspirations challenge this week, which you can see HERE.

She's standing in sparkly 'snow' that I added using puff paint & glitter. The background mat has been embossed with the Swiss Dots CB folder...thought it looked a bit like snow :)
Here's a close up:
It's hard to see in the photo but I've stamped a little Christmas tree at the top & bottom of the left side panel and heat embossed with polysparkle EP

Thanks for looking...have a wonderful day :)
