A Sparkly And Shiny Christmas

Wow, can you believe its that time, again?! It's time for Bugaboo Stamps and crew is celebrating Christmas Chaos, again, over at Catch The Bug! Whoo Hoo! We all know how much you love this event and we are thrilled to be doing it, again, this year! Christmas Chaos runs from December 6 - December 12, with a daily challenge every single day! There will be daily prizes, guest designer spots and a special Christmas digi set up for grabs, so be sure to play along! Remember, the more you play, the more chances you have to win. Keep in mind, though, in order to have a chance at the Guest Designer spots, you have to play along in every single challenge during Christmas Chaos week!

Now, let's kick off this Christmas Chaos celebration with our first daily challenge!  Our theme is Sparkle and Shine and there are lots of sparkly shiny creations being showcased for your viewing pleasure!

Now, here is the low down and skinny on my card.  For my card, I've used the image, DeDe Christmas Bells, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with promarkers. I used a mix of glittery, sparkly papers, from my stash. If you look closely, you can see that I used Merry Christmas washi tape striped across the card. Green gemstones and present shaped buttons have been used to embellish. I added ribbon and a handmade bow to the buttons to make them look more like presents. The sentiment is punched with circle and scalloped circle punches.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
