Christmas Sparkle Challenge at Sisterhood of Crafters

I am excited to be a guest designer this week at Sisterhood of Crafters and I have created this Christmas card for their Sparkle Challenge.    

I love silver and blue  combo on a Christmas card.  To created my card I used this lovely Christmas Bell image from Fitztown.  The image was just right for this swap .  I coloured the image with Copics and glitter pen then die cut the image with a Memory Box layering die.  I mounted the image on light blue glitter paper and added some rhinestones and a ribbon.  Doesn't my card just sparkle.

Hope you will join in this sparkle challenge and remember to check out the many exciting images at Fitztown.  Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day.
