Sparkling Red Christmas

Evening all, hope you are all keeping well and busy. I've had a really lazy day today as it's my 60th birthday so this is a christmas card that I made yesterday.

I used a LOTV stamp called 'teddy and penguin' which I coloured with Promarkers and a touch of Stickles and matted onto some red metallic card. The paper is from my pile of loose sheets (so not sure where from) and I embossed the white card with an Embossalicious 'petite dots' folder. I added ribbon, gems and a sentiment from my stash and used Tattered Lace dies to make the snowflake which I smothered in Stickles so it really sparkles when the light catches it.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Lili of the Valley Monthly challenge 'merry christmas' (my 2nd entry)
The Ribbon Girl Colour challenge 'red'
Time Out challenge 'embossing with the optional twist of sparkle' I went with the option
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge 'snow'
Penny Black and More challenge 'anything goes'
Stamping Sensations challenge 'christmas'
STAMPlorations challenge 'stamps and layers'
Delightful challenge 'you're a gem'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets' (my 2nd entry) snippets of white + red metallic card
Dies R Us challenge 'christmas'

Thanks for popping by and I hope you all have a super weekend.
