Winter Sparkle

Hi guys,

It is time to let you all know about our new challenge over at Aud Sentiments. Challenge #189 is to use a Two Word Sentiment. The prize this time is a gift certificate!
The rules are very simple:
You can make any type of project you want for this challenge such as a card, tag, scrapbook layout, altered item, pocket letter, box, etc.  Just make sure you follow the theme and include a sentiment.

I decided to go for lots of sparkle for my DT project!
I used a red card blank for contrast to the cool colours. I then layered up several different die-cuts to create the scene, using blue watercoloured paper, black X-cut self-adhesive glitter sheets and blue pearlescent card. Finally I added a winter sentiment to the main panel. I used the cut out pieces from the dies to decorate the corners, so wasted very little making this card.

Dies used - M&C stitched square nesting dies and Christmas Snowglobe create-a-scene dies free with Papercrafter Magazine.

I would like to  enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday - Shimmer and Shine
Monday Challenge Winner-01
jingle belles - Tic-Tac-Toe (OK I am stretching it a little but I have gone for Red-Cardstock-Bling {in the form of glitter and pearlescence})
Inkspirational #143 Photo Inkspiration (silhouettes)
ABC Christmas - S for Sketch
Just Hanna #282 Sketch
 I also have some more photos from whilst I was away on holiday:

lots of flying critters and a lovely flower!

Once again thank you for looking,
