Decorated "Merry" - 52CCT April Stash Challenge - Glitter

Hello friends!  Here we are to the weekend and time for another challenge at 52 {Christmas}Card Throwdown - where we are helping you get your Christmas cards ready one week at a time :o)
Deborah has chosen the 52CCT April Stash Challenge which is to use Glitter 
Yep - that's right - Glitter!  We think that most of you must have some of this in your stash in some form.  For example, bottles of glitter, glitter glue, glittery stickers, glitter paper. I missing anything?

I LOVE the look of glitter - but HATE the mess of it. 
Most of my glitter stash is in the form of glitter glue and stickers. 
I do have some glitter paper that doesn't flake off  on everything that I like as well.  
So... here's what I came up with using some glitter from my stash. Take a look:
As you can see, I went to my cardstock sticker stash and made something fun :o)
It's kind of hard to see the glitter so here's a closer view:

Oh dear - I don't know what's wrong with this photo. I apologize for the poor quality!
Hopefully the glitter stuff at least shows better.

I had this negative die piece sitting on my desk from a previous card.  It worked perfectly 
for me to use and participate in the Merry Monday Challenge #105
which is to use a Christmas word or words and decorate each letter of the word.

I am also entering my card in the following challenges: 
Simply Create Too Challenge #60  'Stack Um Up' - use at least 2 layers

So will you join us for the 52CCT April Stash Challenge?  You can use a lot or a little glitter.
The rest of my lovely DT pals have made some wonderful glittery creations to inspire you.
Please go visit them and say "hi". We love to hear from you :o)

Til next time friends...hugs and happy crafting! D
