A bit of Sparkle

One of Jennifer's Frosty Festivities challenges was to use 'glitter or shimmer'......I don't often add sparkle to layouts.....but love adding it to cards.....especially christmas cards.
I love this Mo Manning Winter Fairy.....just perfect for a bit of sparkle.....made as a stamp by Penny Black.....but sadly their stamps are quite expensive in the UK......so I was delighted to find that Mo sells a digi version......with the added advantage that you can re-size for different cards.
A lot of layering on this one.......slightly modern,wintery colours seemed to suit it best......and a lot of glitter and sparkle with gems and glamour dust.
And a few more challenges.....Let's Create and Craft want 'christmas'.......Sparkles want 'contemporary colours'.....It's all about the Vintage want 'glitter'........and 'anything goes' for Creative Card Crew

You always do amazing work, Jacky, but I think you outdid yourself with this one.
