Favourite Christmas Colours with Sparkles

Hi everyone.
I hope you're all nearly ready for Christmas.
I've still got quite a bit of shopping to do and haven't even though about wrapping yet.

Anyhow, today sees the start of a new challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges.
Our theme this month is Favourite Christmas Colours.

I went with red and green...

I've used a cute little Strawberry & Kisses stamp and coloured using Copics.

I've added glitter to all the dots on the backing paper to add a bit of sparkle and I've also glittered round the edge of the scalloped oval displaying the image. I added the glitter before I stuck the image down so the edges are all nice and clean. I placed some lovely red and green ribbon under the image too.
To finish I added a die cut poinsettia with a glittered leaf and stamped the sentiment using red ink and added it to a tag, placing this opposite the poinsettia for balance.

I hope you'll join us for this challenge. You could win a fabulous prize...

A bundle of digi stamps
