Let's party with Sparkles Christmas Challenges

Hi everyone.

As I'm typing this it's just started to snow again. Luckily it's too wet for it to hang around.  I hope you're all managing to stay snug at the moment.

It's time for a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges and as it's our 4th Anniversary our theme is 'Let's party'. Here's my little piece of inspiration using a gorgeous LOTV stamp which I got for Christmas...

I've coloured him using Copics. If you look closely at the cracker you'll see that I added one of the tiny stars from the bunting. The red strip and the green part of the embellishment at the bottom corner of the image are made using a Sue Wilson bow die set. I've added a scalloped circle and star with a glazed candi to finish off the embellishment, also adding starts and candi to the red strip. The star die is a Spellbinder one and I glazed using Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from an old Dandelion and Daisy set. The bunting is a Joanna Sheen die.

We have 2 fabulous sponsors this month...
