Have A Sweet Christmas

I'm off on a bling-tastic, glittery, shiny and rebelling against traditional Christmas colours and images today. Oh er! Hope I'm not offending anyone. Don't get me wrong, I love the traditional stuff but I do like to push the boundaries every now and again. I'm glad I pushed them with this creation because I really like it.

This is my DT card for the Pixie Cottage Challenge where there is a fab sketch and/or the theme of sparkle and shine. I have used both, once again and really gone to town on the sparkle and shine (as well as gems there's lots of glitter too! You'll see that in the photo at the bottom.) I'm entering this into:

Just Magnolia - Anything goes with Sparkle
PaperCutz Challenge - Christmas Card with 2 patterned papers and any colours.
Totally Papercrafts - Xmas Punches (Martha Stewart snowflake border punch
Wags n Whiskers - Snowflakes
2 Sisters - Sparkly Christmas
Sew Many Challenges - Snowflakes
Paper Romance - Winter Themed
Dutch Dare - Christmas
Challenge Up You Life - Advent and/or Christmas
Secret Crafter - Christmas
Cupcake Inspirations - The inspiration photo is a cupcake!!! Perfect!
The Crafty Pad - Anything Goes

Here's a close-up showing the ultra fine glitter that I added to the cupcakes and cakes in this fantastic image.

The images I used are:

Sweet Shoppe by ArTish (what a clever bunny she is!)

I know everyone is really busy at this time of year, but I hope that you'll find the time to join in with our challenge this week. Please take a look at the wonderful creations that the amazing DT have made.

Thanks for looking,
