Make It Sparkle - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
Oh my goodness I can't believe another week has flown past!
I've been working lots of extra shifts due to staff being off enjoying their Summer holidays & as much as I love my job I cannot wait for the weekend when I have two days off :)
I'm trying not to think about all the housework I need to catch up on & focusing on playing in my lovely craft room & chilling out with my feet up doing a bit of blog hopping which seems to me the only sensible option lol.

On to today's card -

 at
& this week our challenge is
 
 My lovely teamies and I are featuring Jane's Doodles & / or Neat & Tangled products on our cards this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to join our challenge.
 My card today features Jane's Doodles Cross Stitch stamp set as well as a cute little Edwin from Magnolia's Winter Wonderland collection.
I've added lots of lovely sparkle to my card using my current favourite Glitter Ritz glitter & I've heat embossed the cross stitch trees using Hero Arts embossing powder & then popped a cute little Studio Calico wooden star on the top of them.

The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, top & shoes - E37, E35, E31, dungarees - E79, E74 E71, Christmas tree - G85, YG63, YG61 / Y28, Y26, Y21
