A Bit of Christmas Glitter

I've been at the Sparkle Medium again, this time to make a Christmas card to pop aside for the festive season.  Apologies for the dodgy photos, the acetate front on this card was a nightmare to photograph, and the glitter looks so much more sparkly in reality.
 The silver Sparkle Medium, stencil and printed backing paper are all from Imagination Crafts, if you haven't tried their products, I can highly recommend them.
To start with, I used the stencil and black gesso to add a black silhouette image to the printed backing paper.  I then stenciled the same scene with silver Sparkle Medium onto acetate, and then, once both pieces were dry, overlaid the acetate piece, offsetting it slightly to give a shadow effect.  The two pieces were stuck together with double sided tape down one side, I used some ribbon to cover the join and embellished with a bow and some gems.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Crafting From the Heart - #63 - Anything Goes
Creative Knockouts - #92 - Ribbons and Bows
Winter Wonderland - A Touch of Silver or Gold
That's Crafty - All That Glitters
Craft Your Passion - #265 - Anything Goes
