Sparkly Christmas

I have finally made a start on my Christmas Cards - I usually try to make flat cards to go through the post! This time, spurred on by the theme at Country View Challenges which is 'Sparkle and Shine' I have taken the plunge with a bit of both!

The stamps are Inkadinkadoo 'Snowflakes' and 'Sketches Scrollwork' 
I added Tumbled Glass distress marker to colour then Aqua stickles and a Sakura sparkly pen, finally I splashed on some Brushed Pewter Distress stain with a brush
I've shown two views here because different parts of the sparkly bits show up.
I'm entering this for 'Sparkle and Shine' at Country View Challenges'

Thanks for looking, Chris

This is a gorgeous card. Like you, I can't understand how some of those cards ever make it through the mail. I think many are for "show." I can tell yours is one that can actually be sent through the mail. it is fantastic, too.

Congrats on the win. Glad to read you won.
