A Bit of Sparkle Christmas

I made another Christmas card using snippets of leftovers and actually I am quite happy with it. It turned out better then I had anticipated.


I used little leftovers and combined them all together to make my design. So I won't be listing any product lines used. I took some sequins and made them look like baubles hanging from the pine branch and with a negative  die cut piece of silver glitter paper these additions gave my card the sparkle I was looking for.

I am entering this in the following:
Rudolph Days Challenge
Mod Squad Challenge

Thanks for the visit. I will be busy as last evening the hubby brought in a 2-gallon pail of green beans so freezing them is on the agenda for today. I hope your day goes well and thanks for taking the time to leave comments. I love them.

God bless,
Verna

Great use of all those wonderful snippets. What a fun idea to use the sequins as baubles. Love the super cute image of Santa and his reindeer and the bling from the die cut sets your card off beautifully ....Great design too x.

Hi Verna,
Happy Rudolf Days.
Such a lovely card and fab use of Snippets also.
Love that image of Santa and Rudolf
The Pine branch really pops with those baubles can't believe they are sequins.
Thank you for joining the Rudolf Challenge.

Yummy! Fresh Green Beans! I'll be glad when we can plant again and enjoy some freshness. They certainly taste different from store bought! Your card is so cute with the sequin ornaments and the combination of contemporary and vintage elements! hugs, de
