Sparkle & shine

What a beautiful morning, the sun is shining and I am in my cropped trousers at last!  And here I am about to show you a Christmas card!!  Oh well at least it is shiny too!! Hee hee.

The backing papers are from the Kate Knight Christmas collection paper stack that was free with a Quick cards magazine, probably last year or the year before!  On the green layer I have put 2 stripes of lace down the sides.

The gingerbread house digi stamp background is from Karen's doodles, and I have cut it out with spellbinders nesties, lattice rectangles.  I have inked and glittered around the edge, and coloured the image in with pro markers. I have also added pink gems and mini gems and glitter to the image.  The Sentiment is from a See D's christmas set and has been stamped onto a Nellie Snellen multiframe die.

Tilda has been stamped and coloured with pro markers, with some glitter added to the fur on her coat.

The large snowflakes are Marianne creatables, and I have added glitter and gems, and the 2 small snowflakes are a tonic studio snowflake punch and I have again added glitter and a gem.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges 'Digi background with Edwin or Tilda' Xmas challenge 'Sparkle and shine'

I hope you like it.
