I Made it 'SPARKLE'

 I have been invited to join the Design Team at
Crafty Cardmakers and am super excited to be
joining this group of Talented Crafters.
I love that each fortnight the challenges
are mixed up making for an interesting experience.
The latest challenge is being hosted by Sally
and she would like to see 'Sparkle'
in the form of glitter, gems pearls
shimmer spray etc (you get the drift).
 I think I have enough 'sparkle' here.
Since Christmas is really just around the corner
I decided to go all blingy and add this
 to my little collection.
A pretty easy card but with a great result.
You can't beat a sparkly snowflake so
I got out my favourite old Cuttlebug Die
and cut it out with some gorgeous purple glitter paper.
My card base is purple and have used
Silver Metallic paper as my backing.
I cut out a couple of strips from
Stampin' Up Framelit Banners
popped my snowflake after adding a
smaller silver one and sparklet to the top.
Sentiment is heat embossed in silver
 and is from Gina K Designs.
Finished with a few purple rhinestones.
 I look forward to seeing your take on our
 'Sparkle Challenge'
after you have checked out what the
Design Team have made for your inspiration.
I am also joining in on the
Here with this card.
 Thanks for dropping in.

I adore the boldness of this glimmer paper - it's very striking. And so great to see a non-traditional colour used. Chantell JAI
