Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Now that most, if not all the retailers are in full holiday mode, it's really beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere I go! I'm so excited to join along with Prima's 12 days of Christmas Cards
The first challenge is:
Who doesn't love a little shimmer and sparkle?
 I made a card featuring pretty papers from the Vintage Vanity collection. To create this card, I added texture to the background using a Prima stencil, stamped and embossed a fancy frame from a Prima stamp set. I sprayed the ribbon and trimming using Prima tea stain Color Bloom:
I embellished with a couple of Prima Poinsettias, star and a couple of jingle bells all having a dusting of Prima art Extravagance glitter:

 Next up is my take on the Day 2 challenge:
 I created a coordinating tag using many of the similar products used to create the card:
Peeking out from under the Poinsettia is a pretty die cut flower / doily that was made using 1 of the 3 ornate flower dies:
For the card sketch inspiration, I joined along with the retrosketches sketch challenge:
I'm also entering the card in The Mixed Media Card Challenge where the theme is Christmas with the option to include Jingle Bells which I did. 
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great week!
Be Sweet ;)
