Wreathabella Card and Christmas Card Challenge Week #39 - Sparkle and Shine

This week's challenge is sparkle and shine! Gotta love these ones, lol, since I typically use sparkle on my cards anyways! Don't forget to check out the Christmas Card Challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's lovely creations.

Unfortunately, capturing glitter is an art in itself, but there is tons of it on my card!  And can I make a secret confession?  Yes...I've been really busy with Sparkle Creations, so that is the real reason why I haven't been participating in the challenge.  But the second reason is...I only have about enough paper to make 2 more cards with my Eskimo Kisses.  I'm anxiously waiting for Jovial to come out! :)

I was hoping it would be at Impress while I was there yesterday, but it still hasn't come in...

Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Stamps: Stamping Bella, sentiment is Amuse
Snowflake Punches, Crystal Stickles, PTI Buttons, Copics, and Snowballs

I also used CPS #181 for this.  Well, I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday!  And don't forget...it's never too late to join in the fun!  Christmas will be here before we know it!
