Third design card for CCAYR August

This is my second design card for CCAYR August challenge: sparkle and glitter. Please click the link to see the wonderful crafting of the rest of the team and we would love to see you entering the challenge with your sparkle and glitter creations.

The background paper was free with a magazine - I've mounted this on to a stardream black card that has a lovely sparkly look to it. I've used one of my favourite Christmas stamps, Rubber Stampede 'Santa collage', inked with versafine black onyx and heat embossed with black detail powder, as was the Crafter's Companion Sentimentals sentiment stamp.The glittered swirls were from Poundland.
