Twinkle and Sparkle

Hello peeps, hope you are well.

Before I tell you about today's card, I would just like to give a warm welcome to my new followers. I'm very happy to have you :D

 Today is the start of the new challenge at Crafty Calendar and the theme is Sparkle..Bling and Embellish!!  The prize this month is a fabulous goody bag from Brenda's Lace And Ribbon Specials. Doesn't it look amazing? 

For my card I decided to start with some gorgeous papers from First Edition called 'Silent Night'.

There's some lovely glittered and foiled sheets in the pack so I've used them for my background, flowers (cut with a Marianne Poinsettia die), and also cut up a couple to make parcel shapes.

The gorgeous stamp is called 'Snow Buddies' from LOTV which I've coloured in with Promarkers (pastel beige, khaki, umber, cool grey 1,2,3,4 and budding rose).

For some extra bling I've added glitter to the petal edges with a Sakura Quickie Glue pen. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment tag (from the LOTV) with Versamark ink/Silver Sparkle embossing powder.

Some of you may recognise the 'snow' that the bear is sitting on - I've used a tumble drier sheet again :D
