This adorable stamp:

Angie's Card

My card's sparkle comes from the glitter card stock I used to mat the panels and Wink of Stella!
 I used  Great Impressions Snow Adorable stamp (E774), Great Impressions Peeking Puppy (C497), Great Impressions Wishes and Sparkles (F312).  I heat embossed and colored both images with Zig Clean Color markers and a water brush, then added the brick wall with a stencil.  I cut a stitched snowflake border above the snowman with a die, then cut silver glitter card stock to mat both brick pieces on, then added that cute peeking puppy over the wall.  I added a little of Wink of Stella for even more sparkle!  

Our Second Sponsor is Sparkle N Sprinkle

Peggy's Card

I used the image Christmas Doves from Sparkle n Sprinkle.  I've added glitter to the leaves & berries.  I used Wink of Stella on the doves.
