A Glittery Christmas

A very frosty morning here today, beautiful blue sky overhead. A walk with the dogs and hopefully settle down to some playing, may have to do some tidying up first, such a messy crafter, a constant battle. 
 Not the kind of card I make nowadays but seen this 3d Robin and knew my Mum would love him, rather old fashioned I know but like to make cards appropriate to the person and this is her kind of card.
Used gold holly  leafed card, red satin card embossed with holly cuttlebug folder. This card cracked slightly when embossed so glittered the cracks, quick effective result I think. Glittered the Robin piccy, added ribbon, now the berries on the ribbon where pink so used a Sakura white gelly roll to whiten and give a raised effect. Entering this in Pollycraft Monday Challenge a glittery Christmas, Ladybug Crafts Ink - Christmas Sparkle
Have some blog candy, would love you to enter.
