How to: wear a glitter sweater

Oh well, another week gone by and I didn't notice that. The trees are so colorful, just love autumn like this. It is also high time to start making X-mas cards. I started earlier than last year, so there's a chance for me.

Every card deserves a little shiny thing!
Our sponsor this week is
San's Design
So take out all your glitters, gems, foils and charms and make it shine!

My DT card is about X-mas of course.
It's made according to the sketch from Sketchy Colors
I am using the sponsor's image 'Sweethart', but I wanted to give her more X-mas look. I used glitter and added an X-mas hair embellishment. The image is colored with Promarkers.
I placed the image on an embossed surface, it looks good in my opinion. There is also this bell charm and faux buttons made with puncher.
The sentiment says 'Merry X-mas' and it's a sticker.
Thank you for visiting my blog! Let's make some shiny cards for X-mas (or any occassion).
I am entering the following challenges:
