Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Monday Idea.

This week we are going to add  lots of sparkle to a Christmas card.

Click to enlarge to see the sparkle.

After coloring in this wonderful stamped image, I inked it with Versamark
clear ink, then embossed with sparkling embossing powder.  
The paper is also glittered and the large snowflake I did the same way.

I think I will call this cute snowman Franky in honor of St. Francis. LOL. Sparkly goodness going on here girly.

This card fit the bill for this challenge. It is not only very pretty with this darling image, but had just the right amount of sparkle (a lot). I am laughing because the other day I was making a card with snowflakes and there was a small heart which was negative from a MS punch and I took it and placed it on the snowflake just like you did. I was thinking that I really liked the way that looked. I guess GMTA. LOL enjoy your day.

That turned out so great!
Do you have a secret to inking up the whole image with versamark?
Sometimes when I do that I get a greenish tinge!
