Sparkly Christmas Baubles

Today's card is one I made using the 'paper piecing' technique.
I used small pieces of adhesive glitter sheets for the baubles.
Unfortunately, it's been a wet, grey day here, so the photos do not show the
shine of the mirror card and sparkle of the baubles very well.
It does look much better in real life! 
I love the sentiment die which I first saw HERE on Pam's blog.
Pam's cards are just stunning, and I must say that blog following can
definitely be bad for my purse!

The items I have used are:-
Docrafts Xcut Embossing Folder - Oak Frame
Baubles Die - Purchased from eBay
Yvonne Creations - Merry Christmas
Xcut - Adhesive Glitter Sheets
Challenges entered:-
