CHNC challenge 4: let's see some bling

This card is for my own Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge 4: let's see some bling - anything that glitters or shines - glitter glue, holographic, foiling, gems/rhinestones - use a little or a lot, it's up to you. You will find all the information here - I would love you to join in my challenge.

Having established my own Christmas card challenge blog, I still like to support the other Christmas challenges that exist in blogland, so this is for Sparkle Christmas card challenge 7, which is this sketch:

I used papers from My Mind's Eye Signature Christmas glitter book. It was difficult to get a good enough photo because of the reflection of foiling, glitter and heat embossing, so I've included two photos so that you can get a better idea of what the card actually looks like.

The Inkadinkado reindeer stamp was heat embossed with detail gold. A few gold gems complete the bling look.

The circle was cut from one of the new nesties I had given me for Christmas.
