Shimmer and Sparkle

Good morning.  Time again for our Christmas Card Club to show our offerings.  Lorraine is hosting this challenge   and asked for Shimmer and Sparkle - and if you can't shimmer and sparkle at Christmas when else can you?  A great theme Lorraine. I have just realised that we only have two more challenges after this. Scary thought.

My Card
Side stepper card - Ryman's card stock
matt silver card stock - Crafters Companion
silver mirri card - Crafters Companion
silver glitter card stock - Crafters Companion
Create a Card  "Snow Crystal" - Crafters Companion
other snowflakes dies - The Works
gems - from stash
I used an A4 piece of card stock to form the stepper card so it ends up being quite a large card but perfect for the snow crystal die. This particular glitter card  is absolutely gorgeous and really shimmers so much it looks beautiful.  Quite difficult to photograph though. And I have just seen that a gemstone has gone AWOL from the top corner!! Easily fixed though.
I'm rather envious of those of you who live in the north because I'm sure you must have had some lovely views of the Northern Lights judging from what I have seen on t'internet.  When I was a student nurse in Darlington, many moons ago, we had some fabulous views and it's something I've never forgotten.
Well, that's it from today.
Take care and enjoy your weekend.
