Cardinal Sprite by Aurora Wings

Hi friends!  Today, I am sharing a shaped Christmas card made with the darling "Cardinal Sprite" by Aurora Wings found here:
I am entering it in Aurora Wings' Facebook challenge.

I cut the snowflakes twice and slightly offset the white glittered ones on top of the red ones for some dimension.  Then, I added Swarovski crystals to the center of the snowflakes for some lovely sparkle.

I applied clear Wink of Stella to the handmade poinsettia for some shimmer.  Enjoy your day, and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.  Hugs, Lori xx

Poinsettia:     Heartfelt Creations "Sparkling Poinsettia" stamp and die set

Beads, berries, glittered paper, Wink of Stella and Swarovski crystals are from my stash.
