Jeez, where does time go.  It's 2 post Wednesday again for me, so here's my 2nd DT card.  It's the  I ♥ PROMARKERS challenge (#193) and our theme is All That Glitters. So, make sure you have plenty of the shiny stuff on your cards.  There are 2 sponsors this week.  Marianne Design and Hobbybook.

Now, any of you that know me or visit my blog regularly know that I hate making Christmas cards and I hate glitter.  I really loathe the stuff, but of course, I have to use it sometimes (or Karen would sack me, lol). As we didn't have to use a sponsor image,  I chose to use a Paper Shelter image called 'Christmas Carols' and you can purchase it HERE.

 Don't you just love the way she is looking up at him? Total adoration, lol.  Awwwwww, bless.

The lantern die is Marianne Design.  I coloured it with Berry Red Promarker and then covered it in Glossy Accents.  A little piece of yellow card was cut to fit behind the lantern and then that was covered in a red/orange glitter.  All the fur around the girls coat is glittered too, but I'm lousy at getting good pics of the stuff for some reason.  Anyhow, it is there!  The embossing folder used on the green background card is Argyle by Embossalicious and then I just finished off with a square doily.  I cut the sentiment with a tag die, lightly inked behind the image with milled lavender distress ink and that was that.
