Christmas Village - Desire Dies

Good morning and welcome to the first of my cards for today, neither of which has any colouring :)
This first card is for the Winter Wonderland team and features a Desire Dies create a card die 'Christmas Village', for this weeks challenge chosen by Julie where the theme is 'The Holly and the Ivy'.

I really had fun making this one, throwing as much bling as I could on it,  The outer layers are that sticky backed plastic in silver glitter and then some dark blue shimmer card.  I added gold nuvo glitter to all the windows and white to the roofs and lakes. It doesn't show in the picture but I also added glossy accents to the lakes.  A few rhinestones to the sky as well as white glitter and finally a little chalk to the trees.  The holly die is from Sue Wilson and the Ivy is a Marianne die, both cut from green glitter card.  I added red pearls for the berries.  

The inside which has a Joy crafts die used to make a space for the sentiment. We haven't had any sunshine here for days so I had to use a daylight lamp to lighten up the images.

We are being sponsored this week by  Di's Digital stamps who are offering a $12 voucher to the lucky winner 

The other Snowflakes ladies have made some beautiful cards for your inspiration this week and you can find them here

Thanks for taking the time to look
