Whiff of Joy challenge - sparkle

Hooray!! It's Wednesday and that means another challenge at the Whiff of Joy challenge blog. Thank you so much for your gorgeous entries to Marga's sketch!! We have a nice easy challenge for Christmas card making this week.....sparkle!!! So get your glitter, gems, glimmer mist and all that sparkles out!! My card this week is to be my Daughter's Christmas card, hence the pink theme using these gorgeous Kaisercraft Christmas papers from the Hobby House. They have all been punched top and bottom with MS doiley lace punch, distressed with tattered rose distress ink and the lacey part covered in glitter glue.
I couldn't decide which of the gorgeous Norma Fickel gnomes from Whiff of Joy to use so decided to use all four that I have! The first panel shows Wee and Christmas tree, coloured with copics and I have added lots of glitter to the shading around her feet and lilac and pink gems to the Christmas tree. The snowflakes have been punched with MS arctic snowflake punch in pink and glitter card.

The next panel shows Wee with Reindeer......
The next panel has a pocket at the bottom with a sentiment from the Whiff of Joy winter kit "snowflakes are winter's butterflies"..........
......and a removable tag to write a personal message on, showing Uru and bird.
The final panel has Wee with Drum. The large rose is from Hobby Craft and the small ones from Wild Orchid Crafts, sprayed with pearl glimmer mist and I have also added some leaves punched from glitter card using a Woodware punch.
A ribbon runs underneath the images so that the card can fold up and be closed with a bow.

Thanks for looking and I hope you can join us this week, I do love visiting your blogs to see your creations! Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's work! x
