Crimbo Crackers Challenge 27 - Shaped and Pink!

It's time for another Crimbo Crackers challenge!  The theme this fortnight (continuing the Breast Cancer Awareness theme too)is:

Shaped and a hint of pink

I've made a rather sparkly and pink star card!  The papers are all from the new Funky Hand download - Santa Baby which is part of the Oh Come All Ye Crafters collection of downloads.  The star shape is one that I've made myself and apart from a little bit of tricky cutting out, its really easy to make. 

I've layered a contrasting paper underneath although you can't see it too well on the photo!  I've used a lot of glitter glue plus I've coated the Marianne Creatables snowflake die cuts with glossy accents and then added some freebie purple / pink glitter I got with a magazine last year and then some other more white glitter over the top.

And yes, I'm still finding bits of glitter here and there!  The little stars are table confetti that I added to fill the gaps.  The snowflakes and little stars have been added with foam pads for extra lift.

Good luck with the challenge!
