TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS - DEBBIE'S SKETCH

This week over at Truly Scrumptious my friend Debbie has created the sketch for the challenge.
I'd be in big trouble if I didn't have a go!!!
The sketch was great & came just at the right time for me as my Mum wanted me to make her crimbo cards, I'd done the reindeer in a circle and just couln't find a suitable sketch, until I saw Debbie's.
Now Debbie is very girly & love sparkles - i'm not very confident with glitter, but I gave it a go!
Not completly sure if it's my style - but it's quite traditional & I am sure will suit my Mum!
xXx

xXx
The flourish in the corner is stamped then glittered - picture doesn't show it to well, but there is glitter there - Honest Debbie!
