Growing in Unity Day 2 - Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Good morning! I'm excited to be sharing my second Growing in Unity day with you! Remember to leave a comment for a chance to win 2 Unity Itty Bitty's of your choice! I will draw a winner after the week is over!

I made two of my projects for the week yesterday - and went a little crazy on the glitter! This one actually isn't too bad - but wait until you see what I made for tomorrow! Total glittery overload! I think it has made its way to every corner of the house! Anyway - here is what I made to share with you today:
I used this DARLING itty bitty (could easily be one of the two the winner picked out of comments this week could choose! Hint, hint...) 

I love how sweet and whimsical this image is! It was a pure delight to color with my Copic markers! 
I stamped it on a circle cut with a Spellbinder's Nestabilities die, then colored it with Copics. Next, I applied some Diamond Glaze in several places, and sprinkled on some Martha Stewart tinsel glitter that I have been dying to try! 
The background doily was cut from DCWV glitter paper, also using a Spellbinder's die. 
I layered together a couple different papers from Webster's Pages, and the red polka dot paper in the background is from October Afternoon. 
Stamped the sentiment and hand trimmed my own tag, then used some crinkle ribbon and jute twine (I don't know if I can make a project without that stuff anymore), as well as a PTI button to attach it and add a pretty bow. The edges of each layer were also inked with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen (my fav!)
I hope you could see the sparkle at least a little bit on here! Just a reminder - don't forget to leave a comment so you have a chance to be my winner for the week! I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow! Have a great day!!!

I am also linking this up with this weeks Case Study Challenge - the focal point image, ribbon, little bling inspired me on this one - here is the inspiration photo:

And to the Inspired by Challenge - the circles, and pretty traditional colors inspired me on this one - here is that inspiration photo:

Finally, linking this up with the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Snowflakes (they're small, but they're there!), and the Ribbon Carousel Holiday Spirit Challenge.
