25 Days of Christmas: Day 12

Hi Everyone!

Well here we are at the half way point. I hope you are all enjoying my little Christmas Crafting journey. Today's card is one that I have to admit, I admire every time I look at it. It's just so sparkly and shiny. This is another one of those cards that I tried to use similar materials and techniques. Kristina used a different stamp and technique for her glitter on her "Merry Christmas" card. My glitter is a tad hard to see in the picture, so you'll have to take my word for it that it is all sparkly and shiny in real life because I put glitter on the background swirls as well as all around the Poinsettia. This stamp is from a set I bought last year at Michael's. It is by Recollections and is called "Christmas Flourish" I did not provide a link below because I don't believe it's available this year. I couldn't find any place on line that sold it.  I stamped the image with Memento ink and colored it in with Copic markers before adding the gold stickles. I cut the scallop circle using an SVG file for my cricut and the "Joy" stickers are from American Crafts. This was a very easy card to do and I hope you like it as much as I do!
Ok, see y'all tomorrow for Day 13!
