Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Add Some Glitter 'n' Sparkle

Hello, friends.  There's a brand-new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week's theme is a fun one -  Add Some Glitter 'n' Sparkle - perfect for your holiday cards.   I just love my DT image - it's my favourite kind of image - a kitty LOL.  This digi is called Christmas Kitten and it's from Guylou's Inimitability Digistamps, one of our generous sponsors.  You should go check out their site - I saw freebies there too. 

Well, do you think I have enough glitter 'n' sparkle LOL.  I coloured the digi with my Prismacolor pencils, popped up the kitty's head and paws, and added Studio G glitter glue to the letters on the stocking.  For embellies, I added some glittery poinsettias, a glittery bow, gems, and a die-cut kitty.  The DP is from Lawn Fawn, and the glittery paper is all from Dollarama.  The sentiment is a wood-mount stamp from the dollar store and I die-cut it in a circle with my Nellie's Multiframes and added a punched bow and gem.  The glittery bow at the top of the card is trimmed from a Memory Box star die.  Here's a close-up of the popped-up kitty.

I followed this sketch from Papertake Weekly:
