Simon Says ,,,,,,, Sparkle

Thanks for all your 'Charming' cards last week :-) We know male cards are difficult so a big thank you to all who entered :-)

This week we have a nice easy one for you ,,,,

SPARKLE !! ,,, so get out your glitter and bling and slap it on :-)

The DT are showcasing WOJ stamps this week and Steph ( Heidi's right hand girl) thought she would challenge us to get our heat guns out and do some embossing too ,,, so we did !! We would love to see you use your WOJ stamps and embossing powders too this week but it is optional :-)

Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a fab spree to her store and she will pay the postal costs too :-)

Have you seen the All New Just In section ??? There is a new House Mouse Santa stamp !!!! GOT to have it ,,, sooo cute !!

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge. I used a gorgeous Wee with Reindeer, which is out of stock at the moment will be back in store soon. I love these gnomes ,, my fave WOJ stamps :-) I coloured the image with Copics and decoupaged the reindeer's front and head ,, so 3 layers and popped then on pop dots, I inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink. The papers are Basic Grey from the Wassail paper pad. I inked all the edges of the papers with a white pigment ink pad and sprinkled with Hero Arts White embossing powder. and heated with a heat gun . I used a Martha Stewart round the page punch, a Tim Holts ticket die and a stamp from the Odds and Ends set. The flower is from a Prima Poinsettia pack and I added a few extra holly leaves from a Martha Stewart punch .I used loads of Star Dust Stickles here and there for extra sparkle. I used some mesh and some red organza ribbon from my stash.
