Frosty, Rudolph and Jolly Old St Nick



I know that peel offs get quite a bit of bad publicity but sometimes I like a bit of shimmer and shine on my cards. These are from Craft Creations and I've coloured them with a combination of pearlex and brush markers and added the odd bit of stickles for extra sparkle. They're layered to gold mirri and are much lovelier irl than they look here. I'm adding them to this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge to use lots of sparkle. TFL and hope you're all enjoying the weekend.

These are stunning; I've never seen peel-offs looking like this. It's strange because I was thinking of using mine (I've got loads), sort of back to basics since I'm running low on inspiration. Now I feel inspired after seeing your great results. Thanks a lot.
Hugs.
