This is my last Christmas card of the year. I made this card for my sister who was a ballet dancer for the better part of 18 years. 

Stamps:  Ballerina Tilda
Paper: I made the background paper using a glitter technique, masking and my Xyron.
Accessories: Snowflake punch, Cricut Lacey Labels, Ribbon, Pearls, Gems, Liquid Pearls, Branch punch, flowers, Stickles.

I colored Tilda with distress inks.

I added flowers to my snowflakes and included some branch punches. 

This close-up shows the lovely effect the glitter masking creates. I card looked gorgeous under my sister's lights. Similar to the way a diamond twinkles under good lights, the glitter just lit up.

I am entering this card in the following challenges: 

 I hope you have a safe and VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
