WOJ Challenge DT card and some Good News

Good morning ! Oh I hope you are as excited as me when you see this weeks challenge over at Whiff of Joy Challenge ' Use Bling ! ' well, what could be easier, when do I never use bling lol ! For me this was an excuse to get out the glitteriest paper I have and really add some sparkle to a card, and what better season than Christmas to make a blingy card. I have used Herb from WOJ, he is such a lovely stamp, I have all of the designs of him and just love them to pieces. I have coloured him with my copics and added some stickles to the spots on the scarf but they don't really show in the pictures. I have matted him onto the sparkliest glitter paper ever, when you catch this in the light it is stunning.
I have used Silk Screened paper from Papermania and the snowflakes are cut from glitter paper and irridescent vellum with my shapeabilities, I have layered them up with foam pads and added a 'bling' crystal in the centres. The sentiment is from Crafty Bitz and the ribbon is from my stash. The photos really don't show things that well, but he is a truly sparkly, blingy card.

I hope you will all have time to come and join us this week, and please take a minute to check out the other DT blogs as their creations are stunning as always.
Lastly today I want to share some good news with you, I have been asked by the lovely Paula from Creative Card Crew to join the DT on their challenge blog, I am such a lucky girl and have l not stopped smiling since I got the email lol. Of course I accepted her kind offer and I hope you will all drop by my blog and the challenge blog on tuesday to see what we have come up with for you.
Big hugs and thanks for looking,
Claire xx
