'Sparkle and Shine'

It's time to 'Sparkle and Shine' at CD Sunday. It's my turn to choose the challenge theme at CD Sunday. I decided the title was appropriate for this time of the year as you , no doubt like me, are covered in sparkle with all those Christmas makes. The glitter gets everywhere doesn't it!!

We had some great jolly Santa creations last time and deciding on a winner will be difficult. What has been decided though are the two winners of our sponsored Sharon Duncan challenge. So to see if the lucky person is you, off you pop to take a peak at the challenge blog (link in sidebar)

Now back to my inspiration for you.

No matter how we try photographing shiny cards never seems to work do they.....I know I'm not alone. But 'Sparkle and Shine' this card does I can assure you!!!
The CD used is from Krafty Hands,  'Holly and Snowflake'.

I began with a square blank card then matted gold shiny mirri card with red card stock on top. The two tags are made using the images of Holly and Snowflake from the CD. Adding stickles Crystal glitter to each image to make them sparkle. I joined them together with some sparkling gold gem string. The 'prickly' holly spray is from my flower arranging box.....comes in handy at Christmas!! Finally I added gold shiny snowflakes from my peel offs stash to finish.

I hope you are inspired to join in. There are more yummy examples on the challenge blog from the design team. I look forward to visiting you soon to see how much 'Sparkle and Shine' you can get on your card and least of all on yourself!!!

Have a great crafty week and keep on crafting those Christmas makes....they've got to be done!!
Have fun!!


  1. A lovely card Wynn - I like Snowflake the bear, very cute. I agree it's very difficult to capture sparkle on our cards. It either glares or disappears!

  2. Lovely card Wynn and theme choice. I agree about the difficulty in showing the shine and glitter. I think the professionals must use special lighting.
