Christmas Sparkle

Hello everyone, two posts from me today!
A while back, I was lucky enough to win a challenge at UnstampaBelles.
Part of my prize was an invitation to be GDT with them for a month.
The theme for the December challenge is

You can create something all sparkly for Christmas, not necessarily a card 

We all end up with glitter all over us and the creative space anyway at this time of the year
so go for it!

The twist is to make us (the readers) smile!

This can be with your project or with your post about that project!

A $20 Aust. Gift Voucher to an on-line shop of choice
(must be able to issue gift vouchers)

Here's my card!

I used a white 6"x6" base for my card.
I cut some glittered card stock using a Lawn Fawn Die,
silver for the snowscape & blue for the night sky.
I added a die cut, white glittery circle, cut with a spellbinders circle die
for a moon, then added some EK Success punched white glittery reindeer.
The snowflakes are punched, and the sentiment is a glittery peel off. 
I also gave my lead reindeer a red gem nose!
This card lurked about in my head for a while & it was good to get it made up
 I'm glad to say I was happy with the results!

Thanks for popping over, I hope you like my card!
I hope you'll play in the challenge too!
Just remember not to use a stamp, rubber or digi!
