Glitter Glitter Everywhere

Good morning folks on a very cold and frosty day but the sun is shining so it's lovely. Being Monday and also the first Monday of the month, we have a new theme for you over at Make My Monday which as it's December is Seasonal Anything Goes with a plus. This week's plus is GLITTER so those of you still making those Christmas cards like me will love this one.
My offering this time is rather clean and simple and something we all need when we're short of time - simple to make too.

I chose this lovely Penny Black silhouette stamp and stamped with VersaMark ink on kraft card and heat embossed with Wow Puff White embossing powder. I then glittered some areas with various Stickles.
I set the panel which I die cut with a Papermania set on a mat of white glitter card. I covered my 5 x 7 card blank with a piece of torn edged kraft patterned paper from the Polka Doodles Magical Winter CD set and added a greeting stamped with the Practical Publishing Polka Doodles Christmas kit clear stamp set with brown ink on buff card, coloured with pencils and cut out with a Papermania label die.
A very clean and simple card.

The Design Team have made some fabulous glittery creations for for inspiration so do pop over for a look.

Challenges for my card:
Addicted To Stamps - Christmas Card
Come and Get It Challenges - Anything Christmas
Hybrid Chick Card Caravan -Make It Sparkle
Bling It On - Christmas
Emerald Faerie Garden - Christmas Non Traditional Colours

Have a great week.
Fliss xx

This card using kraft colours is so effective - I must dig out my Polkadoodles CD as I tend to forget what lovely things there are on them.
