I wanted my needles and cones to have any icy look of winter so I added Dazzling Diamonds for the sparkle.
In my opinion, Christmas needs lots of glitter. I punched the bows and snowflake with a Martha Stewart punch. The snowflake is a punch and stamp. I stamped three times and layered for dimension, then added the glitter.
I used the sketch from Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #22 for my card. This was a lot of fun deciding what to do and seeing what others do with this sketch.
