Add A Little Sparkle, HMFMC183, Candy Winner

Hello Papercrafters. 
I've created a very sparkly card for the "Add A Little Sparkle" HMFMC183 Challenge" over at House-Mouse and Friends MC. 
This card is super sparkly IRL with all the Rhinestones, Glitter,  Stickles and Bling Rows. LOL!  I hand-cutt this sweet image to have the tree centered inside the die-cut triangle. The faux snow was made with Stickles and ultra-fine textured Glittler by Martha Stewart. The ornaments were colored with Glitter Gel Markers for a little sparkle too. The Row Bling is so fab and easy to use. Found this giant roll  in the floral section at Michael's. They come in various colors, cost much less than buying individual rhinestone packs, can be colored with markers, and are perfect for card Bling.

 CARD RECIPE:
Stamps: Stampendous! Cling Stamp called "Trim The Tree"
Inks; Memento Tuxedo Black, COPICS, Glitter Gel Markers (for golden ornament sparkle)
Papers: Pebbles DP - Christmas Stack, White CS
Accessories:  Creative Expressions Austrian Collection Innsbruck Oval Die by Sue Wilson (for sentiment panel), Spellbinders Triangle Dies, Creative Memories Corner Rounder Punch, EK Success Deep Edge Tree Punch,  Adhesive Rhinestones, MS Glitter, Stickles and Bling Rows

FAB 50 CARD RECIPE
STAMP: Rubber Stamp - by Stampabilities, stamp is called"Over 50...", #C1058. I separated the word "Over" to just read "50 and Fabulous!" That sounded better. :)
