Make the Season Bright

I made a card today combining inspiration from 2 challenges that I like
to participate with regularly.

The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown
has  stash challenge going on.

Glitter and Bling
I think everyone likes to have a little bit of that at one time or another.
I found this free Christmas lantern printable a few weeks ago at
and knew I had to download it for later use.
I printed it twice, once on white card stock and then on cream colored vellum.
The print on the white card stock was colored with Spectrum Noir pens,
fussy cut, glittered  and placed on top of the image printed on the vellum.
Then I added the bling. I like the way it turned out!
