Make it sparkle

This is my design card for Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 116: anything goes with a twist ... make it sparkle. Please click the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

I used some very sparkly DCWV Christmas paper as the background, wrapping round some sparkly silver ribbon - the piece wasn't long enough so I improvised instead of trying to make a knot. The image is AuroraWings Christmas owl with Santa Hat (AuroraWings are sponsoring the challenge). I coloured this digitally with Microsoft Paint before printing out and cutting, also adding some stickles glitter icicles glitter glue to the furry bits on the hat. The little tag is one that's been lurking in my Christmas box for months.
