Shine A Light

This week, at Crafty Little Fairies, it is the turn of the Pink Fairies to invite
you all to enter our 'CHRISTMAS IN NOVEMBER' challenge.

Remember you can now use any brand of image you wish, but you must use
an image.
This week our sponsor is Crafty Ribbons, and they are generously offering
a £10 voucher.

I created my card using a sweet Lili of the Valley stamp, Shine a Light.
This is the first time I have used the lovely snowflake border die,
but I was a little disappointed at how the glittered cardstock looks in
the photo. I bought quite a few 12x12 sheets in different gorgeous colours
just before Christmas last year, and used a silver sheet, which showed up
as a dirty grey, and this gold looks quite brown. IRL they are so sparkly,
one almost has to wear sunglasses! 

A closer look at this little sweetie. As with the glittered cardstock,
reds never seem to photograph true to colour.

I punched a tiny flower for the poinsettia centre, and added an 
even tinier gem. The snowflake die-cut is from the same gold c/s as
the snowflake border.

Inside my card. Although the matting looks brown, it is 
definitely red!
