Christmas is Coming but DON'T PANICK!

There are a couple of challenges I made this card for and they are
#255 Sandy's Sketch Challenge
and over at
 they are looking for an
O for Off the Edge
(hope my card qualifies)
not forgetting
with your 1 favourite colour
and those that check out my blog
regularly know that...
it is PURPLE
because thistles have purple
popping out the top and I just love them.
(My Scottish Heritage)
I decided because I could enter a card in a few challenges
I put my favourite thistle stamp away for this one.
So here is what I used
Paper is Pearlescent Textured card stock
I added an extra layer to the base with the same paper
and attached some Just Craft Glitter paper to the side.
Got out another favourite item
Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia for my glittery flower.
My tag is from Kaisercraft Tags and attached
some silver glittery ribbon
EK Success punch in the corner and cut out
an extra piece of glitter paper to add to the cut out piece.
Sentiment is from Gina K Designs  cut from
a JustRite Banner Die
Added a few gemstones 
and a sparklet to the flower.
Well that is another Christmas card to add to my collection.
Hope you like what I made and would love it if you
leave a comment.

So beautiful, even if it IS a Christmas I can't even THINK about Christmas right now, it's so hot the 90'sF. I love the purple and white, very striking. Love all the glitter too - just gorgeous!
