Can you see the sparkle?


I don't think you can see how lovely and sparkly my card is today.I have used one of my favourite Christmas stamps from Stampendous printed onto kraft, distressed and sprayed with iridescent sparkle. The paper is Dovecraft North Pole, edged with DI Vintage photo and distressed. As this is a big stamp I kept it simple by adding some Woodware punched holly leaves and pearls. I used white Wink of Stella pen on the leaves and love the effect.

This is one of my favourite stamps. I love how it is so easy to get that vintage look as it is a stamp that lends itself to this so well.
Lovely card Marianne (isn't it frustrating when the photos wont show the sparkle).
