Christmas Stamping All Year Long! Add a Little Bling

So, I am moving right along with my Christmas Cards! I am very excited about this challenge ,which is add a little bling! I will be hosting the challenges the second week of each month!!! Thanks Maria for including me in this!!! Ladies, if you have any ideas for challenges, please leave me a comment in my chatter box! I'd love to fulfill your requests!

So how does one add a little Zing with Christmas Bling? Well you can use Glitter........... Red, Green, Gold, Silver.........anything that suits your fancy! Maybe a some Rhinestones or Blingy Brads, Some Pretty Embossing anything that resembles Tinsel or Christmas Lights! LOL!!

I added some bling bling to my card, by  using Spica pens on the parrot, which is not captured well with the camera, some stickles to poor Frosty's Tears and by adding Dew Drops and a Maya Road flower. Image is coloured with copics and snow is created with a white gel pen. DP is Popcorn Balls from the Basic Grey Dasher line.

You may think this image is a little morbid for a Christmas card, but I couldn't help but chuckle when I saw it and was choosing my latest stamps from Stampotique!!! 

Poor Frosty isn't very happy, but the Parrot sure is enjoying a hearty snack!
