wonder which designer contains the GRAND PRIZE this month?

and here is what i've prepared with the sweet holiday #655 stamp set:

to create my card i used various SNS glitters, pattern papers and white cardstock.

to create the different layers i used SPELLBINDERS labels one nestabilities die.

i coloured the gingerbread house with COPIC SKETCH MARKERS. i added the sparkle effect using different color glitters. for the roof of the house i used GM2000 cloud nine velvet glitter microfine. then i added G1029 bridal glitter to the roof decorations. and finally i coloured the heart with G1022 shell pink glitter.

i die cut the fence using MARIANNE DESIGN die. for the pine tree i used TIM HOLTZ movers and shapers die CHRISTMAS mini. i decorated the tree with GM2000 cloud nine velvet glitter microfine and adhered it to my card using scrapbook adhesives - 3D foam squares - variety pack - white.

here is a list with some of the products you can find at SNS online store:

i hope you enjoyed my project!

have fun hoping!

hugs 'n smiles,
