Perfect Sentiments Challenge 10: A Sparkly Christmas

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go" ...even here at The Perfect Sentiment.  And there is always a twist and this week's challenge is to use sparkle and a Christmas sentiment.  Brrrrrr...... it is cold here in Minnesota with a bit of snow and the perfect time to stay inside and work on Christmas cards.  Perhaps this week's challenge will spark(le) an idea and get you well on your way.  There are so many items on the market that add from a touch of sparkle to all over twinkle.

Our sponsor this week is Kania's Amuse Studio with a $15.00 gift certificate.
(Please note :  If you are this week's prize winner and live outside the United States, we are unable to award you a physical prize,, but you will receive a digital prize sent via email.  By the time we complete customs paperwork and all associated with sending packages outside the United States, the cost is more than the prize value.  This also includes Canada.  But the following are considered prize eligible:  APO and PPO box addresses or a PO box in the US.  We appreciate your understanding.)

For my inspiration several Christmas carols came to mind but one stood out - "Silent Night".  Perfect!
Recipe
Paper:  Base cardstock ~ 4" x 9 1/4" folder ~ White Bond ~ from The Stamp Pad Co., Inc.; Midnight blue ~  DCWV ~ The Shimmer Stack; Patterned ~ BoBunny ~ Snowfall Collection
Embossing:  Cuttlebug Lace Tree
Punches:  Snowflake Border ~ Corner Snowflake 
Ribbon:  Scrap ~ unknown but it made me think of snow and it shimmered
Snowflakes:  From the punches used
Sentiment:  Penny Black ~ Season's Greeting
Ink:  Black Stazon
Sparkle:  Glimmer Glam ~ Nightfall ~ used on embossed tree and sentiment; Spica ~ Clear ~ used on snowflakes 

Rarely, do I find inspiration without music - Silent Night, Susan Boyle
