Sentiment at Sparkles Christmas

It's time for our August challenge at Sparkles Christmas, and this time we'd like a festive sentiment to be the main focus of your work.

I've gone for a very bold, bright modern effect using some sparkly foam adhesive letters. Naturally being pink and sparkly, my granddaughters have used quite a lot of the letters from the set, but I still had enough to create the word "Noel" and I think it looks great on a black background.

I've added an embossed snowflake background, some lilac matting and some sparkly pink gems - the only reason I still have some of those is because the grandchildren haven't spotted them yet!

I am sharing this with Holly and Ivy - Anything Christmas Goes
