Sparkle Sparkle Everywhere

Good evening, 2nd post from me today and after spreading glitter everywhere - I think even Gizzie got some I can share the sparkly card I have made for the 12 month's of Christmas Design Team showcase.
Twinkling lights, garland, and tinsel oh my!  Christmas is quickly approaching and as we start to get ready for the festivities we'll be noticing that our surroundings will soon be rather bright and sparkly.  Whether it is part of the decorations that we put up or the special sparkle in the eyes of the people around us, there is a certain glimmer about.   Just like our surroundings, it is time to give our cards that same kind of glitzy look. 
The sponsor this month is

 Sparkle and Sprinkle
In order to have a chance to win the prize from them, we want to see a Christmas or other holiday card that has lots of sparkle and shine on it.   Here is your chance to grab your glitter, sparkles and other forms of bling and get to it!   If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.
Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies.  You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $15 gift certificate to the Sparkle N Sprinkle store
The additional prize as always is a mini set of digital papers called the Glitteratti set from
On to my card
I have used Winter Stream from the Sparkle and Sprinkle store I have colored the image using Polycromo pencils and the added an abundance of crystal glitter to all the snow! there are sparkles on top of sparkles! I then added Glossy Accents to the icicles and parts of the stream to give even more shine. I embossed some shiny pearl card with a holiday sentiment folder. I matted this onto aqua card along with my image. To finish I added yet more sparkle with 3 crystal gems to the bottom left corner.
Now come over to the 12 Month's of Christmas Link up and enter your Christmas makes!!!
