A Spoon Full of Sugar -challenge 23

This week our challenge on A Spoon Full of Sugar is 'Sparkle and Bling' yes we want you to get the glitter, gems etc out and give your card a bit of glitz!
I've gone for yet another black and white christmas card using my Serendipity snowman stamp from Joanna Sheen, as I love to add lots of glitter to him, I've actually used 3 colours of 'sparkles' black, silver and grey. I'm really not sure about the flower but needed something big in the top left corner to which I added a variety of black buttons and topped the big one with a clear and sparkly heart button. Blingy gems, ribbon and the words mum and dad to finish. It's a bigger card than I normally make A5 (A4 in half) as my mum thinks I should make bigger cards!

We have a fabulous prize this week which has been kindly donated by Lana from Dotty do Crafts, why not nip over and take a peek and look at the rest of the design teams cards to, lots of sparkles!

This card is also my entry for this weeks Secret Crafter challenge which is to use the sketch provided.

My card also passes for the Stamp Something challenge this week which is 'something for the birds' my snowman is holding a bird house and has a little birdie sitting on his hand.
