Midway reminder for CCAYR: Sparkle and Bling

Hiya there! Hope you are well! I'm feeling very tired - not sure why - probably trying to do too much! Still I had a nice rest last night instead of going to aerobics so that was good.

Today I've got a Christmas card to share with you featuring a lovely image from Mo Manning - so gorgeous.

The challenge is for a card containing sparkle and bling - I used glitter on the wings to cover this base - otherwise I think the card is fairly clean and simple. The image has been coloured with promarkers and cut out using a spellbinders die. The inner edge was distressed with tumbled glass DI and the papers are LOTV.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

DP2mosdigitalchallenge: Ribbons and Pearls
abcchristmaschallenge: Bingo: Ribbon, blue and glitter
ilovepromarkers: Ribbons and bows
fabnfunkychallenges: Add a sentiment
tuesdayalchemy: AG
2sisterschallengeblog: Pastels

Hope you have a wonderful Friday - not much planned here for me today - just an aerobics class - then I've got friends of Lucy and Penny's popping around after school and for tea before we head off to Jujitsu. Penny gets her Gi tonight (suit) - I'll take her photo when she has it on!!!!

Thanks for popping by and have a fab Friday!
