Spoon full of Sugar and Lili of the Valley

Well, my crafting night was a disaster. 5 cards consigned to the bin, mojo completely gone AWOL, and a mess of crafting items all around me like you wouldn't believe in an attempt to get some crafting inspiration. Always the way isn't it? When you have the time and the peace and quiet to craft you get crafter's block.

Anyway, I did manage to make 1 card for A Spoon Full of Sugar and Lili of the Valley challenges.

A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge is all about 'Sparkle and Bling'. Boy does this card sparkle!

Lili of the Valley wants to see Christmas cards. These two challenges were made for each other this week. We all love plenty of sparkle and bling on our Christmas Cards.

Items used:
My own backing papers (see the freebie link on the right). I randomly embossed a Debbi Moore snowflake stamp in Silver Tinsel embossing powder.
Stamp: Rachael Ann Miller
Snowflake die cuts - gifted to me by Gina.
Silver Glitter, Silver gems, water colour pencils, a peel off and a little blue inking to define edges finished the card off.

I went crazy and glittered the edges of this card. It really adds to the sparkly effect but is sooooo messy!

I really don't think it needs anything else.
