Penny Johnson - "Looking Chic" card

Two Christmas cards in just over a week - that must be a record for me!  I love this stamp - and it always stamps really nice.  It is "Looking Chic" from Penny Johnson.  The papers are all from DCWV - I'm still trying to use up a DCWV set that I purchased from QVC a couple of years ago.  They were in 2 drawer boxes - I bought all 3 sets of them and I've still got loads left!!  Do you know the ones I mean?

I've coloured the image with pro markers and added some Glamour Dust glitter and a few gems in the corner.  The circular sentiment stamp is from Cat's Life Press and I've used my new Marianne's Poinsettia die.  As you can see, I'm still practising photographing glittery things - trying to capture the sparkles!

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Passion for Promarkers - Divas with Glam and Glitter
Sweet Stamps - Bling it Up
Ruby's Rainbow - Gems
Ooh La La - Christmas Card
Stamps & Fun = Creativity - I used their sketch
Gingerloft - Make it Sparkle

Thanks for visiting today,
