Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Anything Goes (As long as it sparkles!)

Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT card.


This week it's Tracie's turn to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and she's decided that:

'Anything Goes (As long as it sparkles!)'

I decided to make a Christmas card...surprise, surprise...and inked up another of my new High Hopes stamps ('Chris Mouse'). I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added some sparkle to his lights with some 'Ice Crystal' Stickles. The glittery papers are from the 'Wonderful Winter' pad by My Mind's Eye, and the snowflakes were cut using Cuttlebug and Marianne Designs Creatables dies...they've been coated with Stickles too. And I added some adhesive gems to a couple of the corners, and some of the snowflakes for a bit more bling.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please visit the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.
