T'was The Night Before Christmas

Hi everyone, well are you all in the countdown to Christmas yet yeeks!! I can't believe it's less than eight weeks to the big day!! So right now I'm panicking (again lol!!) .. why do we do it to ourselves, when we have all year to get organised lol!!

My card today is for 'Papertake Weekly' Challenge, which this week is 'Anything Goes' with the option of Sparkle and Glitter..  I embossed the poinsettia and leaves with gold, I also gold embossed around the image, music sheet and sentiment.. even the stars were gold embossed!! The ribbon is also gold and really does sparkle.. I used Tim Holtz Distress marker pens to colour the image, and glittered everything with Stickles and Stardust.. also roughed the edges of the paper and card..
