HLS Christmas Challenge #2 "Sparkle"

Good evening all.

I've had an afternoon out with my friend today...a facial at the local spa followed by a leisurely lunch....it's always good to put the world to rights!

So pleased to be here sharing some inspiration for the second Christmas challenge at Happy Little Stampers. The theme this month is:




Here is my card:


One of my favourite dies from Poppy Stamps, cut from a Nestie square then mounted to the base card with some double sided foam. I then used red glitter to fill in the die cut blanks. A very simple but effective card and flat enough to post.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the inspiration from the rest of the team, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
