Sparkle & Shine!

Hello!  It's great to have you stop by again! 
 Today I have a treat for you that just sparkles and shines!
It's a design I created for our current challenge over at Crafty Creation Challenges...
"Let's See You Sparkle & Shine"

Our current sponsor for this challenge is none other than...


who has generously offered our random prize winner 5 digis of their choice...but wait...it doesn't end there!  They have also decided to award a second prize of 2 digis to one lucky random winner should we have more than 50 entries for this challenge!  How awesome!

I chose to work with the "2013 Build Your Own Christmas Set".  I loved the versatility of the images.  It included a candy cane, fir branch, bow, holly and berries, jingle belles and some tree ornaments.  You can print them out and use the single elements or cluster them in a variety of designs.  Just limitless possibilities!
For this creation I opted to use the fir branch, candy cane, holly and berries as well as the bow! I added some snowflake swirls I cut with my Silhouette Cameo...and then broke out the Glitter Ritz and the Stickles!  After all, the goal was to make it sparkle and shine!
Here's how it came out...


And a closer look at the image grouping I created...


I've used a smokey brown paper which actually shimmers as the card background.  I assembled the grouping of the images and then decided to make part of the grouping more 3D like to give the card some dimension.  I curled the bow, as well as the holly leaves so that they lift up off the page.  Once everything had been adhered to the card, I went to town with the Glitter Ritz and Stickles.  I'm hoping the picture shows sparkle and shine!  Lastly I added some tiny dots on the card with Liquid Pearls and when it was almost dry I put a small amount of the Diamond Stickles on top so the dots would shimmer.
And there you have it...that's my glittery, shiny, sparkly creation!

Will you accept our challenge this week?  Are you brave enough to break out the glitter, Stickles, shiny papers, ribbons, etc.?  I know all too well the mess it can be...but the mess usually leads to great creativity and fun!  So link up with us over at Crafty Creations...we wanna see how you sparkle and shine!
