Add some sparkle or bling at Polkadoodles

Good morning, these Fridays' come around so very quickly and I'm here with a brand new challenge over at Polkadoodles.  This time it's add some sparkle, bling or glitter or if the mood takes you all three!

For my project I made a fairly big card using a cutting file from Tina, I had opened an oval frame on my Cameo but squished it down a bit because I wanted a circle in the middle. The card is made up of eight panels and is quite long, I was going to do the full set of images from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection but thought this was large enough and you would get a good idea of the kind of thing available on the cd/download.

I printed the images in colour but they also come as line drawing for you to do yourself, great to have both options. I then edges all the edges in green glitter, I cut out the holly and edged those edges too, it doesn't look a sparkly in the picture but it was very pretty once finished.

I am entering this into the following challenges;
Crafting with attitude - Anything Goes
Crafty Girls Creations - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
7 Kids college fund - Anything Goes
Crafting By Designs - Get Ready for Christmas

This is what I used

Use a die cut with Polkadoodles

Good morning all, I'm here with a little inspiration for our current challenge over at Polkadoodles. This time is so easy for you because it's use a die cut!  I have used a die i got when I went to the craft show at Doncaster earlier this year, it's a huge A5 die and is a door/window and has an arch top which I've cut off to make my design a square.
My idea was to make a card that looks like you are inside looking out and what should you see coming across the snow but Octavia, she comes from the wonderful Frosted Winter Collection.
I added some stockings and baubles to give a lovely Christmas feel but you could equally use this image for a winter birthday.

I'm entering this into the following;
