New Challenge at Christmas Fun

Today starts of a new challenge over at Christmas Fun  - a Christmas card with glitter!

Here is my too can follow the theme but you can also enter with
 'Christmas Anything Goes!'

My card is based on the Christmas carol "I saw three ships come sailing in".
I started by matting a white square card blank with some lovely textured silvery paper.
The first boat was the negative of an image that I cut using my Silver Bullet from a purple paper -
 the image came from a Get Inky! digi.
 This cut-out has been in my stash a week or so having made a card with the positives!
 The paper came from a neglected Daler-Rowney pad in my stash (Pastel Cool).

 I then used the physical version of the same stamp to produce my second two images.
I used tacky glue to make a stamp pad and used this to stamp the images'
 I then scattered them with fine glitter, again using the purple paper.

Finally I added the words, printed on my computer and matted onto silver card.
Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!
