Festive Sparkle

Hi everyone, another day, another Christmas card, at least that's how it's feeling for me at the moment but if I carry on at this rate I may get them all finished in time (fingers crossed!)
Today's card uses another of the gorgeous xmas images that I recently purchased from Mo's, this one is called 'Boughs for the Wreath' and I love the slightly vintage look of it.
I used absolutely masses of 'Diamond Dust' on this card, both for the snow and also for that snowflake embellishment, but unfortunately, it hasn't shown up very well.

I'm entering this for the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - #126
I love Promarkers - Glitter & Glitz
Creative Inspirations - Lashings of Sparkle
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (plus a bit of bling)

Card Details:
* Image - Digital Pencil Too 'Boughs for the Wreath'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Dovecraft 'Winter Wonderland'
* Dies - Nestabilities
* Everything else from my stash

It's highly likely that I'll be back with another card tomorrow, I hope you don't get fed up with looking at them as much as I'm getting fed up with making them! See how easily I get bored with doing the same thing, now you know why I dislike xmas cards so much, don't you?
