Just glitter it.

Good  Morning friends,
This post is a little late in going out, as we had a storm last night with lots of lightning and so all the electronics were disconnected. I went to bed before we could put it all back, so I am a few hours late.
We had some very welcome rain with it, so am very grateful for that.

On to my project. The theme for challenge #83 at Let's Craft and Create this fortnight is Glitter.
As Christmas is getting closer and I am way behind in my cards and tags I decided to go for a Christmas tag this time.

This is what I used:

The tag was cut out of normal cardstock. I wanted a large one, as it will be used instead of a card on a gift. I Inked the edges and added embossing powder in places.
The lantern was cut out of mirror board...a Marianne design die.
The candle was brushed with pearl paint and the flame with gold glitter..also a Marianne design die.
Poinsetia is a Joycraft die,..all glittered.
Leaves are a Nellie Snellen punch.
Added a ribbon bow, floral stamens and a button to finish.

I just find it very difficult to photograph using mirror board.

Will be back to enter some challenges later.
