...just makes everything better, doesn't it? :)
Today I'm sharing an unusual card...for me, that is.
There is absolutely no patterned paper on this card! Just loads of glitter, some lace, ribbon, a few rustic bells and a bit'o Glossy Accents.

Glitter! Looks pretty and sticks fast too!

A little bit more glitter on the ivy...

And some fun knick-knacks...

Card made for these challenges: Pollycraft (Christmas Fun), CCC (Tis the Season), PTT (Red and Green Christmas), The Paper Variety (Anything Goes) and Aud Sentiments (Any Winter Sentiments).

Oh dear, my brother came back from boarding school yesterday in the wee hours of the morning, so I got to sleep around three, and then had to get up at eight this morning....can you say 'sleep deprived'?! lol, I'm gonna finish up the post right here before this really starts affecting me. ;)

Have an awesome weekend! :)

ETA: Due to lack of sleep, I forgot to say 'thank you!' for all your kind words on my last card - I'm so glad you liked the window idea! :)
