All Things Bright and Sparkly

Hi there and hope you are all well. Today I would like to share another card I made at the weekend using one of my latest LotV Christmas stamps. The whole concept of this one was to tie in to the theme of bright and sparkly over at this week's LotV challenge.

I had so much fun with this, cutting out trees and snowflake flourishes from glitter card and dusting glamour dust around ... again the pic was taken in a fiarly poor winter light but I can tell you that irl this card is REALLY sparkly !!

Stamps: LotV "Shine A Light";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; glamour dust on coat and snow;
Papers: Bo Bunny;
Supplies: gems from The Hobby House; Craftwork Cards sentiment; button from my stash;
Tools: Marianne D Creatables "Christmas Tree" (LR0136); Memory Box "Frosty Border" die.
