Challenge #131 - Anything Goes plus optional twist of "Make it Sparkle"

The theme for December 2016's challenge is

with an optional twist of "Make it SPARKLE"

Can you believe that it is Christmas this month? Honestly, for me, this year has just flown!
This is therefore our last challenge for 2016 so let's celebrate with a LOT of SPARKLE!
The Design Teams and I wish you all a 
Blessed Christmas

Hosted by Lindsay
Hi Everyone! And welcome to the Digistamps4Joy December Challenge. My name is Lindsay and I am a part of the DS4J Design Team and couldn't be happier to be hosting this month's challenge, which is always is Anything Goes! When trying to think of the "twist" to add on, for those of you who want a bit more of a challenge, I wanted it not only to be something you could add to any digital stamp you choose to use, but also go along with this time of year and that is "Make It Sparkle". No matter the weather where you are or what holiday you may be celebrating this month, you can always add a bit of sparkle to your card!

For my card today I chose to use the "MouseChorallers" digital stamp from the DS4J shop. For my sparkle, I added Perfect Pearls and Distress Glitter to my texture paste and then put it through a snow stencil for some added interest to my scene! The picture does not do this card justice, I promise it really sparkles in real life!! Make sure to link up your card before December 31st for your chance to win some really great prizes! I can't wait to see all the sparkly goodness in the links below!

The theme for December is always ANYTHING GOES, but this month with the optional twist of 'Let it Sparkle'
