Simon Says: Shine Bright Like A Diamond

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

Have you seen our brand new look? We have had a fabulous makeover!!

This week the challenge is

Shine Bright Like A Diamond 💍

We would like to see some sparkle and bling on your projects this week!
As it is the first Monday of the month we will be showcasing a company/designer and this week we are all using products designed by the super talented Tim Holtz! I am sure you will all have at least one of his products, so it's time to get your 'Tim' supplies out and get crafty!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
I used a Mini Crazy Cats And Dogs Set  and a Festive Scribbles Die Set  to make a super sparkly Christmas Card 

This little Rudolph pup decorated the tree all by himself using his favourite bones and glitter balls and his bright shiny nose is lighting the way ;-)

I used Evergreen Bough Ink for the tree and the background mat. After blending watercolor paper with the ink I then brushed Festival Green Perfect Pearls over the top, gorgeously shimmery. 

and one of his friends is waiting to play on the inside ;-)

I also made a different, more stylish CAS version using the same Festive Scribbles Die Set  ;-)

So now it's YOUR turn to get out your Tim Holtz supplies and join in! 

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #sssmchallenge so we can see your entries there too

You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in

How cute!! I love the look on that dog's face. It looks as if he isn't sure he wants to leave his bones on the tree. : ) Thanks for playing with CHNCC2.
