Sparkle and Shine at Christmas time

I made this card using a new stamp which was part of my birthday present from my OH.   I'm entering the card into this week's Less is More sketch challenge and also into the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown 'Glitter and Bling' challenge.

Woodware Bubble Bloom Festive Tree stamp
Gold mirri card
Card Candi
Nail heads

I stamped the image and sentiment onto white card, trimmed them to size and layered them onto gold mirri card. The image was decorated with card candi, nail heads and stickles.  I turned the sketch on its side to assemble the card, using foam pads to attach the image above the sentiment.
