Papertake Weekly,,, Sparkly and Bright

Time for a new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge ,,,

SPARKLY AND BRIGHT,,, yep ,, we want to be DAZZLED this week :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab spree on offer for one lucky entrant :-)



For my card I followed the fab sketch over on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge. I used my lovely LOTV Carollers stamp, isn't it beautiful ! I coloured the image with Copics and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. I used some gold stardream card ( I bought loads of this, enough to last a lifetime ,,, WHY ?? !! ) The paper is from the Basic Grey Wassail paper pad. I stamped a sheet of the pale creamy coloured paper ( from the wassail pad) with a Penny Black Music stamp with pigment ink and embossed with gold EP to use in the squares. The Poinsettia and rose center are from Prima The sentiment is also from the LOTV set. I used Diamond Dust, Platinum and Star Dust Stickles for all the spakly bits



Challenges :
Cute Card Thursday ,,,, Sketch
Bah Humbug ,,, Elegance (no tree's but there is a lampost, hope that's OK Ann ,,, now you can slap Max's legs lol )
LOTV ,,,, Winter Fun
Craft Your Passion,, Glitter and Sparkle
Christmas Card ,,, Add flowers
