Glitter and Glitz

Hello and warmest greetings. I am getting my HM post in just under the wire, but this week didn't allow for stamping (except for gift tags) or visiting and commenting on wonderful projects that I'm sure you all have posted. I'll try to get caught up soon, but I did get my card done for the HM challenge, plus one more card which I'll save and post sometime this week so I don't go so long without a card to share. This week's HM challenge was glitter and glitz, and I have to admit I love that part of the Christmas season. It's just so festive, and these little mousies are trying to do their part in looking festive. I used
Stickles on the ornaments and pine needles and clear embossed the lower background area. I also gold-embossed the sentiment and mounted it all on festive paper that I ordered a month ago from Scrap Supply. I think it was part of the Making Memories papers. I have lots more wrapping to do, cards to get out, a brunch to get ready to host and lots more, so I'll have to get back to work. I did get our presents wrapped and sent to the UK so I was happy to get that in the mail. I hope you're all enjoying the season even though I'm sure you're all as busy as I am. Hugs,.....
Edit: I put the close-up picture in to show the embossing and glitter even better, but it must lose something in the upload process. From my computer it shows up nice and clear, but alas, by the time it got to my blog it lost clarity. Sorry 'bout that.
