Merry and bright

I´m trying my best not to be too behind my Christmas cards, not an easy task! but here I have another one to share with you.
These two stamps Hanging ornaments and Holly leaf are from Glitterbabe (you can find them at Stef´s store here!), I colored them with oil pastel and blended them with mineral oil. After I finished coloring the ornaments I painted completely with my so loved glittered nail polish and added details with gold glitter glue. On the holly leaf I glittered the border and painted the fruits with glitter nail polish. I really like the effect of the nail polish, it doesn´t saturate the image with glitter. I placed the images with foam tape, I drawn the ornaments strings  and the sentiment with gold gel pen. The black cardstock is perfect when you want to highlight the images. The simple sketch is from Clean & Simple sketch #115, love it!

With this card, I´m playing at the following challenges:
Little red wagon: do it in 3´s
Cute card Thursday challenge #138: anything goes
Sunday´s with Crissy #11: red, gold, green
Woopsi Daisy Challenge: it´s Christmas
Cupcake Inspirations challenge #85
