This weeks Christmas card

I can' believe I've already started this years Christmas cards. I'll be sat twiddling my thumbs in December at this rate lol. This card is for three challenges, Fab's Big Christmas Card Challenge which is to use a sentiment and to use gold. Bah Humbug's challenge this week is "All that glitters". Your Next Stamp Challenge this week is 'Anything that sparkles'. The glitter doesn't show up very well in the scan unfortunately

I've used a sentiment tree stamp I've had forever, stamped on to acetate and embossed with gold detail EP. I've mounted this onto some sticky back film which i've covered with prisma glitter. Then I've used gold mirri and some ivory card with a little glitter in it (not sure where thats from but its really pretty in the flesh so to speak). Finished off with gold brads and a gold bow
My Christmas card box is filling up already thanks the these challenges. They are really getting me to think and make some different cards instead of rushing at the last minute and making lots of similar cards
Thanks for looking
