This one is definitely not less is more lol!!!

Good afternoon. I definitely had to tell myself to step away from the embellishments with this one lol!!!
Hope I haven't already over-done it - what do you think?
Not only it is definitely not less is more with embellishments and glitter but it also fits more challenges than the average card lol!!
So here are the challenges I would like to enter:

Lovely hAnglar Only - Glitter (plenty of that here)
Crafty Creations - Make your own button (made mine from shrink plastic)
Paper Sundaes - Lots of Layers
Rosie D's - Burgandy, Pink & Cream
Stampavie & More - Sparkling
Totally Papercrafts - Pearls & Swirls
Incy Wincy Designs - Distress It
Quixotic Paperie - Pretty Pearls
Everybody Art - Sketch

So what did I use:
Image - Gorgeous hAnglar coloured with PM's, Copics and Distress Inks (see - definitely not less is more lol!!!)
Beautiful Tim Holtz DP's - all the edges have been distressed and glittered with loads of Star Dust Stickles
Swirl image - Creative Expressions - embossed with Red Sparkle Glitter embossing powder
Shrink Plastic button - stamped with freebie imae from Craft Stamper
Loads of adhesive pearls from Hobby House Crafts
Ric Rac ribbon & a couple of eyelets
Punched snowflakes
Martha Stewart border punch
Prima flower

And now you know what I mean about the post title lol!!!
Thanks for popping over.
It has just gone very dark here - think a thunderstorm is brewing.

Oh hun this is stunning, so pretty, love, love, love it, the amount of embellies is perfect (coming from a woman who can't step away lol).
I was eyeing up the burgandy swirls and just about to have a tantrum that the page must have been missing from my TH pad then read you'd embossed them, aren't you good, I neglect my heat gun unless it's for shrink plastic so thanks for the inspiration
hugs Mandy xx
