Bearly Mine Challenges - 18 December 2012 - Winter Birthdays

Today sees the start of the last challenge for 2012 for the Bearly Mine Challenge Blog.  This time the topic is "winter birthdays".
The challenge this time is being sponsored by our very own Leader Donna and the winner will get to pick 2 digi sets of their choice.
This is the card that I have made for my sister-in-law's birthday on 28 December.  It must be hard for people having birthdays in the week before and after Christmas so I always make sure I go a bit over-the-top with her card to make it special.  I have used Bearly Mine Designs Christmas LightBearly Mine Designs Gingham and Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dots backing papers for this stepper card.
The images I have used are freebies from the Debbi Moore website as I have decorated the inside of the stepper to match the outside and used the smaller images inside.  The main image I cut around and layered and out came the glue pen and glitter.  This reminds me of why I dislike using glitter like this as I struggled getting the leftover glitter back into the pot - I think I'll stick with Stickles in future!!  The flowers I die-cut from the same papers and add brad centres to the middle.  I have added such a soft feather I was bought for Christmas last year.  They were too nice to use so I have had to keep them for a while.  Just wish I knew where they had come from as I'd love some more.  I have finished the card off with a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Delightful Sketches - Very blingy
Paper Play - You're a star - star brads
CRAFT - Winter
Totally Gorjuss - For someone special
