Happy Holidays

I was unsure of how I was going to like this hostess stamp set which is in the Holiday Mini Catalog, but with this card, I love it. It turned out so pretty. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday Sketch. I don't know if you can see the sparkle or shimmer, but I did use the Iridescent Ice with the Real Red classic ink and versamark to give it the sparkle. I was thrilled with the turn out. Don't know if you can see the additional sparkle or not, but I also used the shimmer paint mixed with rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle and spritzed the card to give it an additional shimmer. Really cool!
