A Holiday Color Combo with Some Sparkle

Happy Friday!

Doing the happy dance that the weekend is almost here! It's been a busy week and I am tired! Hoping to get my holiday shopping started this weekend too. Starting to sweat it here as I've not done anything yet and we are what 22 days away now! Hope you all have some fun things planned for your weekend.


Today brings new challenges to both Just Magnolia and Stamp Something! We hope you will visit and play along with us this week, great prizes to win for both of these challenges. I have decided to combine the challenges for one card as time has been tight lately. The challenge at JM this week is our special monthly challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and the theme is Anything Goes or Sparkle! Yep, you guessed it, I went with the sparkle! And over at SS our challenge is to use your favorite holiday color combo, so pretty easy to do with the holidays fast approaching. Our sponsor at SS this week is Kut4U!

I went with the color combo of blue and red from these beautiful Bo Bunny papers. I've stitched the edges on the sewing machine and then sprayed all the layers with glimmer mist. The image was colored with copics and then cut out and glued to the snowflake embossed white layer. I've embellished with ribbon, eyelets, snowflakes and gems, a heart with twinklets, and a Happy Holidays ticket from Whimsy with more twinklets.

This card also fits these challenges:
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - let it snow
Dutch Dare - Christmas
Some Odd Girl - girlie
Creative Belli - "R" embellishments (rik rak ribbon and rhinestones)
Creative Cottage - untraditional Christmas colors
Stampavie and More - snow / snowflakes
Artful Inkables - die cuts and punches
Crafty Little Place - anything goes
Scrap-Creations - anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown - embellish it

Thanks so much for dropping by today. I wish you all a wonderful weekend. See you next week!
