Add a bit of Sparkle

I have just got back from shopping at Boots - taking advantage of the spend £50 and you get £12 of points on your card.
I have bought 2 lovely gifts which were 1/2 price. They are a set of drawers filled with Sanctuary products. I think they are well worth the money, but of course it was the set of drawers for keeping craft products in that took my eye first rather than the bath products inside them!!
I am well pleased with myself - I like a bargain.

Anyway here is my card for today.

Once again I have used a Lili of the Valley Stamp - I just love James the bear - especially with the cracker.
The papers are digital ones and I have coloured the image with Copics.
I have to say that I do like the turquoisey colours although my hubby prefers the traditional red and green.
Here is a close up of the Snowflakes - which are made using a Martha Stewart Punch and glittered with Glamour Dust. Then I have added a spacer and a brad.

I am entering this card in the following challenges
Friday Sketchers Challenge - which is the sketch I have followed.
The Crafty Pad Challenge - the theme of which is Christmas.
The ABC Challenge which is G for Glitter.
The Simon Says Challenge - which is Punches.
A Spoonful of Sugar - which again is Punches.
Thank you for looking - if I'm not back tomorrow, I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
