Sparkle and Shine

 Hi all, the weekend is here and I am getting well into the Christmas spirit now, I have just bought and decorated a little tree for my craft room, I bought some decorations but plan on making a few myself to finish it off properly and I am going to have to dig through our boxes of decorations to find the angel that Amy made when she was about 8 years old, it will look perfect on top of the tree :-D 

I made this card using the Simon Says Stamp December 'Winter Twinkle'Card Kit


 I spritzed the background with Silver Shimmer Spray and then splattered with white paint before adhering a few sequins, that were also in the kit. I used the Platinum Embossing Powder for the sentiment.

I even finished the inside :-)


It's my brother's birthday in a couple of weeks and I made this for him, it is quite masculine don't you think ?


and this is the lovely kit 'Winter Twinkle' :-)

Right, off to get the fruits marinating for the puddings :-)
