Glory to God

Hey everyone!
I totally forgot it was Tuesday and that we are starting a new challenge today over at Tuesday Throwdown!!  Whoops :)

With the holidays in full swing, it seems every card I make or project I think up involves glitter or sparkle of some sort.  I try to clean up my desk and put everything away, and all the glitter bottles seem to just creep back out and stare at me.  But it's okay!  Christmas projects are meant to sparkle!

Which is perfect for our "Bling It On" challenge!!
Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish and they have provided some awesome images for the team to use!  I chose the Angel Chorus image and printed it on vellum.  I did that because I wanted to heat emboss the image with some sparkly powder and it wouldn't work on regular paper, but the printer ink stays nice and wet on vellum and gives me plenty of time to sprinkle the embossing powder on.  All that sparkle is so perfect for this image.

I used my new Mama Elephant Borderlines Trio set again for this card.  This scroll type die cut was the whole reason I chose to purchase this set, I just love it!  Since the image is on vellum, I needed to add something behind it.  So I chose some soft patterned paper that matched the elegance of this image perfectly and die cut them together.  Then layered some burgundy cardstock behind it and die cut that as well so it gave a nice border.

The rest of the card was left really simple.  I printed off a fitting sentiment from Doodle Pantry's Holiday Greetings set and layered that onto some ribbon.  To finish it off, I added just a few clear gems around the sentiment.  Not sure I'm sold on having those on the card yet, but they look nice anyhow.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    Crafting When We Can #83-Clean and Simple
