Christmas Chaos - Day 1 - Sparkle and Shine

This is day 1 of a funfilled week with daily Christmas themed challenges over at Catch the Bug. You can win prizes by participating in one, some or all challenges this week.

The first challenge is to make anything Christmas with the theme "Sparkle and Shine". This is my GDT card, using Stocking Santa star colored with blue Promarkers and with lots of glitter glue added to the star and the fur trimmings of his hat.

I've used silver paper, the bottom layer was dry embossed and for the top layer I used my much loved MB star stencil. The silver panels as well as the sentiment are mounted onto silver mirri paper. The sentiment is stamped with a stamp from Lawn Fawn and I added 3 gems for some extra shine.

I would also like to enter my card in these challenges:
1) Sparkles Forum Challenges - The Big Guy
2) Delightful Challenges - Twinkle Twinkle (add something sparkly)
3) Incy Wincy Designs - Christmas - non traditional colors (no red or green)
4) C.R.A.F.T.- #288 Christmas
