Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning all, it's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this week our theme is 

All That Glitters

We're sponsored by Joanna Sheen who are offering a £10 voucher to the monthly winner and this week our very own Natali is our weekly sponsor and she is offering this from her shop as the prize. Isnt' it fab?

And so here is my card. I've used the gorgeous Crystal Flakes from FunkyKits which my lovely friend Cathy gave me. I actually coloured the image in a few weeks ago with the intention that she was going to be entered in the Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge that week cos I was going to team her with Kraft card. However, the decorating took over so she didn't get made into a card and sat on my cutting mat patiently waiting. 

Well, now it's her time to shine. Well, glisten slightly... I *may* have gone slightly ott with the glittery embellishments here.... but it's Christmas eh?!

Challenges I'd Like to Enter
Crafty Ribbons - Christmas
Whimsy Inspirations - All Things Sparkly
Fab n Funky - Die Cuts and Punches
Stampin For The Weekend - Anything Goes

Hi Susan, I do think this is a perfectly wonderful card - the image is so sweet and your dies, gems and embossing are just perfect.


PS - I wondered if my Flatfriend was in the noddy as well - I think she was meant to have leggings on instead of legs! - but I thought well I used to wear dresses that short about 20odd years ago - so why not!!
