Just Us Girls Saturday Challenge

Happy Saturday and another fun challenge with Just Us Girls! Our technique this week is called Sparkly Stained Glass!
Here is what I came up with using a Unity Stamp and I went with the Tim Holtz inspired tag. This is not one of his 12 tags of Christmas but his tags inspired my tag for this challenge! :-) I distressed the tag using distress inks and then stamped the music image (Ippity Stamps) in black. The green circle that the birdie is on is actually a piece of chipboard which I colored using distress inks. My sentiment "JOY" is chipboard which I again colored using distress inks and then I added crystal effects (crystal lacquer) to it which gives it the shine!
