visions of sparkles

ETA: I left the original image and uploaded a new photo I took this morning in daylight. The funny thing is, you still can't see the sparkles on the card, but you can see the reflection of the sparkles on the wood counter. Go figure!

Tomorrow I will try to get a better picture of this card, because this one really does not capture the sparkle of the glitter. I had this vision in my head of using scrap strips to create a background and then adding a bit of sparkle to the card and I think it sort of works but it may be one of those concepts that needs to be refined a bit. The base of the card is river rock, the strips are real red and the main image is old olive. The tree is embossed with white embossing powder. I used 2 way glue and romantic red glitter to make the "ornaments" on the tree from Lovely as a Tree. I used heat and stick powder and romantic red glitter for the "Sparkle" sentiment from warm words.

It's not my finest effort, but after a day of stamping and writing out Christmas cards it's the best I could do. Hopefully tomorrow will bring out a little more creativity.

I think it's beautiful and quite clever! I never would have thought to add sparkly ornaments to that LAAT image... I think it works very well! TFS :)
PS - I am using LAAT for my Christmas cards this year - same image, in fact!
