Christmas Dance

Evening, all! I'm taking advantage of a few minutes between washing the dishes and the mass invasion of the family for 'Doctor Who' to post a card I made today. This little cutie is Christmas Dance by LotV and I coloured her in Promarkers.

I used Nesties for the sentiment and image mats, and an X-cut star die for the stars. I've used the gold card from a children's craft pack again, it's nice and thick so it embosses really well!

Papers are also from LotV, a digi from last year (I don't think they do them any more, now they are selling those gorgeous new paper pads!)  The flowers are from stash - I think the blue poinsettia came from Angel Crafts but don't quote me!

I used a Magnolia flourish die and stickled it. The leaves are cut with a Woodware punch and scattered with crunchy glitter. I had a go at making the glittery twirlies that Bev talked about here last week.

 You can just about see the twirlies. Next time I'll use finer glitter - I have an unnamed pot of thick, crunchy glitter and I have no idea what it's called or where I got it from! Story of my life, really.

The seam binding and polka dot button are from The Ribbon Girl - I won a mini-bag from the wonderful Dawny P!!! I am such a fangirl, I shrieked when I saw my name on her blog!

I want to enter the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday for the fab sketch - though I forgot to add an embellie to the sentiment so it may not count!

Lili's Little Fairies The challenge is an embellishment bingo: I used glitter, ribbon, buttons - well, one button, I couldn't think where else to put them!

It's Doctor Who time! Gotta go!

Thanks for looking, my lovelies!
