A Sparkly Christmas Ornament


     Boy the creative juices were just flowing today.  Two card in one day and three posts!  This card is based on the Midnight Madness sketch for this week and uses a Fred, She said Designs image called Christmas Ornament 1.
     I was kind of worried when I started coloring the ornament, and yes, I used Copics.  The blue and red are both so bright, but they matched the papers perfectly.  I couldn't believe what a difference it made when I added the glitter.  I wish you could see it IRL it looks really cool.
     I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Pollycraft #70--glittery Christmas
Play Date Cafe #56--red, olive, and turquoise
Tuesday Taggers--use the word peace, joy, or love
Blessings!
