Holiday Sparkle

 A card this sparkly is really hard to photograph!  I tried both black and white backgrounds last night and couldn't capture the true colors, so this afternoon I took the card outside and tried sunlight, shade and everything in between and as you can see, I still ended up with three different looks!  The Medallion sticker is mounted on light green and gold foil paper and popped up with dimensionals.  The background DP is from the Luxury Stack by DCWV.  The stars are a border punch with gold foil cardstock behind them and then two different ribbons run down the center.  The rest is just from my stash.  All that shine and I didn't even use glitter! 

I am entering this into the following challenges:
The Stamping Boutique - Christmas
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Chall -
              Layer it Up
Crafty Hazelnute Christmas Challenge Extra
Sparkles Forum Christmas Challenge -
               Non-Traditional Colors
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge -
                Nature (Flowers)

Hope to see you again soon!
