AAA Cards - Challenge #105 Sparkle

It's the last challenge for 2017 at AAA Cards. And extra time to play along too. Time to put a little sparkle into your life.

So I chose some very sparkly silver holographic card and almost equally sparkly purple pearlised card as my starting point.

I haven't used balloons for ages and they are a particular favourite of mine, so I die cut a trio from the silver card. And then it sort of evolved as a New Year celebration card. Strange how particular colours evoke different occasions and for me silver and purple is always New Year.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn, Winter Scripty Sayings
Inks: Versamark, clear; WOW! embossing powder, sparkling snow
Die: Claerly Besotted, Make A Wish
Card: silver holographic from my stash

All the other AAA Cards DT have ideas to sparkle up your creativity, so do go take a peek - HERE. And there's a $20 Happy Little Stampers gift certificate up for grabs too - but you need to play along to be in with a chance.

Thanks for looking today. Hope your Christmas preparations are taking shape and you've not reached that overwhelmed by it all phase. That's pretty much where I'm at at the moment, boxes everywhere and no lovely clean and empty surfaces - sigh! I keep telling myself it will pass - a glass of something helps too!

And keep (Christmas) crafting!
