Two Weeks to Go.................

Yay, its Tuesday and that means its the Colour Challenge over at the Outlawz - Tuesday after next it's the Big Day and I am so not ready!
This week's inspirational picture was chosen by Roxann -

and the twist is very appropriate for all of us at this time of year - Add Glitter!

Oh my goodness - how much glitter have I used this last month or so! I eat it, sleep with it even shower with it! Well onto my card for this challenge:

I used some Centura Pearl for my base card and stamped it up using a peg stamp from Rubber Stamp Tapestry using Memento rich cocoa ink. My Christmas tree is made from a Sheena Douglass paint fusion stamp. I stamped up the layers and coloured with Promarkers and then added some lime glitter to all the edges. The lime green spotted paper is from a Nit Wits Collection, Time for Tea. I added some iron grey satin ribbon and stamped and heat embossed the greeting with some chocolate embossing powder. The little cones are I believe from a Yew bush that I collected a couple of years ago, dried them out and sprayed them silver (I think I was using them for something at the time and these were a few leftovers,lol).
Well that's it - I hope you like it; now why not pop over to the Outlawz and check out what the other girls have made, there are some fab cards for your inspiration and I hope you will join us!

Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate you taking the time and I hope to see you again soon!
