Very Glittery Card

Afternoon peeps.  It is so dark and dismal here.  We have been out posting all the Christmas cards as some are going abroad, queues were miles long in the post office.  It was bitterly cold as well.

My card today is very glittery but sadly shows nothing of the sort because of the dismal weather.  Tried with my daytime light but that made it worse.  

I am adding this to:- - Twisted Thursday - Anything Goes - Twist:- Christmas Sparkle.
