1st DT card for the Penny Black Challenge

Well, I'm still bouncing around with excitement from being picked for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT, but managed to steady my hands for long enough to make my first "semi-official" DT card in advance of joining properly next week. The theme for this week's challenge #21 is sparkly/fireworks .... now I only found this out at the same time as non-DT members so needed to make the best of what came to hand, which unfortunately ruled out a firework theme. But when I spotted the term "sparkly" I thought .. now we're talking LOL!! So here is a (very) sparkly Christmas card made using only items I'd got around the house... hope you like it !

I used:
Main image is Penny Black "Xmouse ornament", watercoloured and the snowflake glittered with a Stickle.
Sentiment is PB "A wish.." inked with Brilliance pearlescent ink.
2 co-ordinating pearlescent background papers are by Reminisce - the main patterned one has white and turquoise sparkly accents.
Image and sentinent are matted onto turquoise shimmery iridescent card and white glitter card cut with nesties.
Sparkly fluffy yarn is by Cardology.
Gems are by Papermania (silver), Paper Studio (green) and free with craft mag (blue).
