Sparkly Flourish!

Hello! I hope you're having a nice weekend! I'm back again to show you a little christmas card I've made for a couple of challenges. I adore this stamp and after I'd bought it went to a craft show and saw all the beautiful things people had made with it, and yet I've still only used it a couple of times! But when I saw what Mandi & Chrissie had planned for this week, I dug it back out again. I've embossed it in white then added crystal & silver glitter then a couple of teeny gems. I didn't use the sentiment attached to the image for some reason and went for this Waltzing Mouse one instead. I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by!
