The glory of Christmas challenge 71

This is my design card for the Glory of Christmas challenge 71: glitter and/or shine (or anything goes as long as it's Christmas). Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used offcuts as bands across the card, including the embossed pearlescent paper (an embossalicious folder). Flowers are Craftime. The image is on an ATC that I made a long time ago as part of a swap (and I had one for myself). the image is Rubber Stampede Angel Collage stamp inked with memento tuxedo black and embossed with gold detail embossing power with some gold stickles added, mounted on to a piece of glittery, shiny card.

This is also for my CHNC challenge 253 (sorry to be late with this ... and a bit of cheating combining this): it's time to sing.
