'Tis the season to go shopping!

I have had one of those run around days today - 
where I have taken pictures of my card in just about every room in the house.
I've finally settled on these - the best of the bunch I'm afraid!

This was a quick make, using Lili of the Valley die cuts.
I used a shaped nestie to make a 'window' in my card and stuck one of the scenic die cuts to the inside piece.

The little shopper was cut from one of the die cuts and everything was sprinkled with Glamour Dust and Stickles.
IRL this is VERY sparkly.

Wow Caroline - this is totally gorgeous! The shaped aperture makes a fabulous frame for the background scene, and what an adorable Christmas cutie on the front. LOVE it! I know what you mean about dashing into every room to try and get a perfect photo - takes me ages to get one I'm happy with, however, these photos look perfect to me and I can see all the sparkle too.
Hugs, Sylvia xxx
