CHNC challenge 63: glam it up with glitter

Saturday's come round again with amazing speed, so it's time for a new challenge on my CHNC blog. Challenge 63 is 'glam it up with glitter' - a little or a lot. To find out more just click on the link - it would be lovely to see you there and for you to join in with your Christmas creations.

Today's challenge is being sponsored by Bugaboo stamps (more info on CHNC) and I've been joined by two of their team with their lovely glittered Christmas cards: Cely Smith and Sandye Curry - please go to their blogs and have a look at their lovely cards.

My card is based on Jill's sketch for Sketch n stash 82:

I used the Bugaboo digital stamp 'Cupcake Xmas Lights' colouring with copics and a Papermania glitter pen and mounting on a red and gold foiled panel. I've used an A5 sized card covered with an offcut of My Minds Eye glitter book paper - another wander into the playground at Pixie's crafty snippets 10. The red glittered panel across the bottom is recycled from a Christmas cracker the Christmas before last (yes, you've seen some of this before and I still have some left), edged with a glittered trim from Poundland. The Happy Christmas foiled sentiment and the red and white ribbon are from stash.

This is also for:

Scrap it girl March: go green & recycle
Party time Tuesday 58: riches at the end of the rainbow - lots of bling
