Glitter, Glitter Everywhere!

I think I may have gone a little OTT with the glitter on this card...my excuse is that it's for a couple of 'sparkly' challenges...and you can never have too much glitter on Christmas cards! lol
The image is from the 'Christma Critters' set by Penny Black, and the glittery papers are from the 'Wonderful Winter' pad by My Mind's Eye. I cut the snowflakes using Cuttlebug dies, which I coated with a generous helping of Glamour Dust.


I also gave all of the edges a thin border of Glamour Dust...not something I've done before...but I rather like the effect, so I expect you'll be seeing it again! lol 


Challenges for this card:
A also had a little play yesterday afternoon, and made some flowers following this tutorial that I found on Joanne's blog...I rather like how they turned out (really easy to make too!)...but I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them! lol
