This is for our challenge to use left-overs and I actually had the main panel left over from a different project - and the bird! Love it when I can use these leftovers. I used a technique that Jennifer McGuire posted called Faux Textured Metal Paper - you can read about it here (I used a shimmer spritz rather than perfect pearls): http://www.jennifermcguireink.com/20...-giveaway.html
After creating the main panel, the rest is die cuts cut from glimmer paper -it is so pretty and sparkly IRL, but of course the camera doesn't do it justice. This card also works for a few challenges:

this is such a beautiful holiday card! i love the blue panel, the embossing and the glittery dies. unfortunately, it won't be eligible for the prize draw because the penny black and more challenge requires a stamped focal point, but thank you so much for sharing t with us!

I recognise that technique (and must try it myself), it looks stunning! I really like the die cut details too. Great work. Thanks so much for playing along with our technique challenge at 52CCT this week!
