It's time for another challenge at Sparkles Forum, and the theme couldn't be more appropriate:

Something that Sparkles!

Now I've added the odd sparkly ribbon or rhinestone to a card in the past, but I felt this challenge called for a little more creativity from me. So off I went to the local crafty store - I found one 10 mins from work! - and discovered Kindyglitz glitter glue. Oh so cool - and so easy, even I can't stuff it up.

I was looking forward to using my very first Christmas stamp - Wild Rose Studio's Milton and his sledge. Little Milton will feature heavily in my Christmas cards this year, I just love how cute he is!

Here's my sparkly creation:

As you can see I have glue glittered all over this little guy's santa suit, and also stuck a bit onto the sentiment. I then added some sparkly crystals to add some extra bling, and a silver ribbon with sparkly snowflakes. To continue the snowflake theme, I added the cutest little snowflake charm.

I wish the photo would show just how sparkly this card is. I am quite chuffed with it! I did take about eight photos to try and show off the sparkles - hopefully you can see them.

The Sparkles Forum Challenge this month is proudly sponsored by Stitchy Bear:

I hope you'll join us with your own sparkly creation.
