Oh Christmas Tree

Good morning everyone, I was going to post this card last night but it took me so long to clean up all the glitter that I got everywhere I ran out of time.

I made this card for this weeks LOTV challenge - a sketch by Domi.  I chose a Christmas image that I've had for a while and got a bit carried away with the glitter.   First I glittered the edges of the image and backing paper, then I decided to glitter the edge of the sentiment and as I'd already got glitter all over my craft room I thought I would coat some die cut snow flakes in glitter as well.

The backing papers are a free download from Jack Heath, pop over and take a look, she has loads of  free downloads.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front.

Image:  LOTV Die Cut Square
Papers: Jack Heath free download
Tools:  Spellbinders - Scalloped Circles, Create-A-Flake Three
Embellishments:  glitter, ribbon and lace from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

CES Challenge 47 - Feeling The Blues
Crafty Creations Challenge 129 - Christmas in July

Thank you for looking today, any comments will be very much appreciated.
