Sparkling Merry Monday #114




Hi Friends

Today's card is all about "Sparkle, Shimmer or Shine" for the Merry Monday challenge this week.  You can see their post here.  This card really sparkles a lot in real life but after many, many photo attempts to show how sparkly it is, this is the best I could do. 



 I started by 'eyeballing' the placement and then used my oval nestabilities to cut the center oval.  Then I ran it through the Big Shot using the frame embossing folder (retired).  I used my Tombow multi to rub adhesive over the embossed area and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds. 


 I then used my 'stampamajig' to place the sentiment on the base card, sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set it.  I set all that aside and attacked the image from Bells and Boughs (retired).  I colored it with Copics and added three little pearls for my mistletoe touch.




 I hope I didn't overwhelm you with photos ... you should see all the ones that didn't make it  :-).  The card is sitting next to me right now and it is twinkling soooo much ... sigh ... pity I couldn't capture that in the photos.  Oh well, I hope you've enjoyed today's card ... I like it's simple, classic style.  Come back soon... more to come!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by...
