Christmas card making time again!

I love this time of year because not only are there some gorgeous products out there but Christmas cards enable you to add sparkle (and as much as you like) yay!!

I have treated myself to some Lili of the Valley stamps and also I saw some Hero Arts robin on Create and Craft the other day which I just had to have. I have also indulged in some more Christmas dies and could have gone on and on with these if the budget had allowed/ Oh well my birthday is coming up in a few weeks. I have to make a short :) list.....

This card is using one of those Hero Arts Robin from the set called 'Christmas Robins'. I coloured it using my Spectrum Noir pens. The papers are from a set of free papers I got from a magazine a couple of years ago which I am try to put to good use. (To make room for more crafty stash, of course!)

The ribbon is from my local craft shop Sew Simple and for anyone in the Norwich area it is well worth a visit and the prices are reasonable. They are also a DoCrafts stockist and regularly hold events with one of my favourite designers.

The sentiment is a stamp from Lili of the Valley and I'm not sure where the card blanks came from. I also added some sparkle using Stickles Glitter Glue.

This card is for the following challenges:
