A Spoon Full of Sugar - Sparkle & Bling challenge

This weeks challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar is to add sparkle and bling! I love sparkle and bling... so here's my entry. I know there's two cards, but Cheryl at work wants two black and white Christmas cards so I made them together. 
I've added Stickles diamond glitter to the snowman, Father Christmas, and yellow Stickles to the star on the snowman, and both cards have the odd bling (jewel).
I used the snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder, again in my trusty old Sizzix. I cut the little reindeers, the stars, and the polar bear from the Joys to the Season Cricut cartridge, and the scalloped edge mats with the Storybook cartridge.
Stamps are Magnolia, and Cuddly Buddly greetings.

And here is Matthew making his cards as well. He coloured in a Santa card, just next to his mug on the photo, and now he's sticking a green felt Christmas tree to the next card. He is using the little kit that we bought for him in the pound shop yesterday. Bargain!
