Sparkly christmas

Hi again! My second card for today has been inspired by the challenge this week at Addicted to stamps and I love the gorgeous photo that we have to inspire us. For something different I embossed all my stamped images in gold before colouring them in......hard to see in the photo but it looks nice and shiny in real life:)

Thanks so much for stopping by today xx
