Snowflakes Sparkle - CAS

I found plenty of inspiration for my white Christmas Tree card at four challenges. On a panel of white cardstock, after using the anti-static powder tool, the tree image was stamped using Versamark ink and 3-D embossing powder. The snow and sentiment were stamped using Versamark ink and a pearl finish embossing powder. The panel was backed with a layer of fun foam and adhered to a white card base. The white shimmer trim ribbon was added to enhance the sparkle. The bow at the treetop is heat embossed and die cut.
Where's the Soft Sparkle on the Tree? I wish I knew the secret to successfully capturing the soft sparkle with my camera. The 3-D EP used for the tree provides texture because it's puffy and has super-fine glitter scattered throughout. The pearl effect from the WOW! EP used for the snow and sentiment photographs a little dark. I tried several types of lighting - these photos are okay but not what I was going for.
