CD Sunday challenge - Home Sweet Home

Hello everyone, it's Sunday!  That means two things in this house, one we don't have to work and two it's a new challenge over at CD Sunday. This week Beryl has chosen her topic and it's Home Sweet Home, lots of things for this one and as I don't need any new home cards I decided to go with a Christmas card, can't believe how far behind I am and need to push myself to get them done.
This is done with the fabulous Thomas Kinkade cd from Joanna Sheen, now I don't know about you but looking at this kind of picture is how I imagine Christmas to be in a perfect world and I'd love to live somewhere like that so it would be Home Sweet Home. I used a dark blue mirror card and then put a piece of 160gsm paper through the Grand Caliber  in a Crafter's Companion folder it's called Picnic Plaid

I printed the image onto 200gsm matte photo paper and this particular one printed over two pages, again this was put on a blue mirror matte, there is a lot of glitter but it is very fine and doesn't really show in the picture, this time I used a Cosmic Shimmer one called Glitter Jewels which I bought from the local garden centre.
The bow is a Tattered Lace die which I bought from C&C when they had free postage on, it cuts really well and I think it's really pretty so it will be making an appearance quite a lot on different projects. Finally the sentiment came from a set of stamps that came free with a magazine, it's embossed with a Sprinkle N Sparkle powder called Blueberry which I bought from Joanna Sheen but she no longer sells this brand. Finally I've added a few gems in the corner and one on the bow.

I'm entering this into the following challenges;
1. Simply Create Too - Snow or All White
2. Crafty Hands - Sparkle and bling
3. Jelly Park Challenges - Christmas
4. Totally Paper Crafts - Ho Ho Holidays
5. QKR Stampede - It's starting to look a lot like Christmas
6 4 Craft Chicks - Christmas
7 Joanna Sheen - Make it sparkle
