Sparkle and Shine Inspiration

Hello to you all,I am back with my second sample for Country View Crafts and the theme is
Sparkle and Shine

 I have another Christmas card to share, well when I think of sparkle and shine I think glitter.

1. I first inked my card with Spun Sugar Distress ink

2. Followed by Dusty concord,leaving it lighter in the center. I then spritzed with some water.
3.I then stamped my image with Black Archival ink slightly to the left allowing room for my sentiment.
4. Next I stamped my sentiment again with Black Archival ink
5. I then got my glue pen and dotted around the trees and on the flourishes of the sentiment.
Last of all I matted it onto some purple and white card.
