Christmas Sparkle

The current challenge at House Mouse and Friends is Christmas Sparkle.  The DT cards are so fabulous that I found myself humming Christmas carols as I admired them.  :)   For my card, I used large chunky glitter on the snowflakes and a few of the holly leaves. Sadly, the glitter on my card isn't showing up well in the photo, so it looks like "Christmas lumpy" instead of "Christmas sparkle." LOL.   The green paper is from Stampin' Up and the red foil chipboard used to be packaging from Bath and Body Works.  It was too pretty to throw away, so I cut it up and have been using it to make Christmas cards.  The sentiment in the bottom right corner says "Be Merry."  I thought that was appropriate since this little mouse looks so happy! I think he's trying to catch one of those lumpy snowflakes on his tongue. 


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
House Mouse and Friends--"Christmas Sparkle"
Simon Says Stamp--"Anything Goes"  (Just doing my part to hit 1,000 entries)
Cute Card Thursday--"Animal Crackers"

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
