A new challenge at Crafty Ann's

We've got a fab challenge for you this time at Crafty Ann's, you can take your inspiration from Ann's fantastic sketch, use a Christmas theme or combine the two. I've used the sketch and made a Christmas card using Ann's gorgeous poinsettia faberge egg digistamp and tartan and poinsettia backing papers (you can find them all in Crafty Ann's shop here

I've matted and layered the bps on some gold mirri card and made a gold mirri frame for the focal image. I printed the poinsettia egg out onto acetate and they stuck some double sided adhesive film on the back so I could add lots of Judikins prisma glitter to the back of the image. I used 3d foam tape to attach the image to the card to let the glitter really sparkle. To finish off I added some paper flowers and one of Ann's fab Christmas ticket sentiments.
Here's a pic of the faberge egg, its such a beautiful image and I love the effect of the glitter, hope you like it too

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Christmas: Y is for Yuletide (+ red and green)

Thanks for visiting today. I love Fridays, not long till the weekend. I should think about doing some Christmas shopping really but it will have to wait till the weather improves a little
love and hugs
