Simon Says....All That Sparkles


Well it's the start of the week and I'm feeling a bit more up for it today. Sad that the family are back home in Solihull but glad they were able to come up for a few days.
This card, made for Simon Says .... All that Sparkles, is an adaption of a card that I made at a class at Stampaholics in Perth taken by Jean. I hope to use it in various forms as one of my Christmas cards this year.
The image is an amalgamation of two Magnolia stamps - "Sitting Santa" and "Chimney". The paper is unknown and predates my blogging days, sorry. I used white glitter card and put it through my Sizzix in a Cuttlebug snowflake folder. The flowers I made using a pattern from the new quarterly Magnolia magazine (really top quality publication, if you haven't got it I would recommend it) and the ribbon and bells are from Stampaholics. I put some glitter on Santa's hat band, beard and boot tops and the snow on the top of the chimney (you might have to zoom in to see it).
I quite enjoyed making this card and I hope you like it enough to let me have your opinions. I really appreciate you taking time to leave a word or two.
Hugs,
