Sparkle & Shine

Hi everyone ~ 

A really quick post today, to share a card I created for Virginia's View Challenge: All About Glitter! This is Virginia's last challenge, and I'm really going to miss it! I've been so busy this month (like all of you), so, at the eleventh hour, here is my card:


 Here's a close-up of all that glitter and sparkle:



This card is approx. 5x7. I started by water coloring the SSS Single Roses, and added Wink of Stella, then used aqua glitter paper for the leaves and shadow on the PTI sentiment. I also used silver glitter paper, and Liquid Platinum EP on the stamped sentiment. And, that was it!


Thank you, Virginia...for all the work and love you have put into all of your challenges! It's been great FUN!!!

Since this is my last post before Christmas, I would just like to take a moment to wish all of my Christian blog friends a very Merry Christmas! I also hope all of my Jewish blog friends had a Happy Hanukkah! May the peace and joy of the season fill your homes with love and laughter! Thank you so much for stopping by, and for your very sweet comments! Happy Holidays, everyone!
