Christmas Sparkle.............

Today I would like to share with you another Christmas card made with my recipe of Spellbinders  throw in a lot of Tim Holtz and Embossing folders mix together  and the result is plenty of fun and .............yes a card.......lol...............no I haven't been at the Sherry..............

I used a shaped card blank which I stamped and embossed with white twinkle embossing powder which has silver glitter embossing powder mixed in,  I found this in my stash I've  had it years, I used the crackle stamp from the Stampers Anonymous TH Mini Holidays 4 and it looks really lovely in real life just like ice sparkling.... not sure if you can see it though here is a closer look

not sure if that is any better
Borders were cut with Spellbinders Iron Works Accents, main panel embossed with Harlequin folder, TH Carved Ornament #2 was cut out with the 25 movers and shapers die and  run through a holly embossing folder I backed this with silver mirri card, faux pearls were added and a little bit of glitz in the form of distress stickles rock candy ...........which again doesn't show up in photo very well, the faux pearls and sparkly gems were added to the main panel too. 

Finished off with gorgeous ribbon and pearl hat pins.
