Celebrate the Season...

I really need to make more Christmas cards as I've only made a couple over the year & Christmas is creeping up on us (a bit too quickly for my liking as I have lots to do).  As our challenge at Sentimental Sunday is "Bling It Up" (+ a sentiment) I seized the opportunity & made a card with a Pink Petticoat's Diva Doodles digital image.  I colored the holly with Sakura Tiara pens & added gems for the berries.  The poinsettia is die cut from glitter foam & the centre is micro beads (the DP is from my never ending stash of papers),  ooh I added a bit of Glamour Dust too in case there wasn't enough sparkle lol.  Our fab sponsor is PPinkyDolls Art & do I hope you can join us.

The challenges:
Crafty Hazelnut - Something Beginning with P (Poinsettia)
Sparkle - Layer It Up
Coffee, Chocolate & Cards - High Heels & Purses
We Do Doobadoo - Christmas

Sorry about the rubbish photos :o( (it does look much better in real life).  Thanks for looking, enjoy the rest of the weekend & have a fab week :o)

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was
extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying
your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer
but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for
newbie blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Ummm . . . can there ever be too much sparkle? Nope, I don't think so! This card is super cute. I love the little gems as the berries and you have totally inspired me to use some glitter paper I have next time I use my poinsettia die! Yours looks awesome. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2.
