A Season that Sparkles!

In a matter of days, the package over at Flourishes will be unwrapped unveiling a bunch of new surprises just in time for your Christmas cardmaking marathons! And, to get ready, Flourishes is ushering in a one of a kind challenge that could land YOU with their whole October release. It just so happens to include six... yes six..new stamp sets!

So, here's the challenge! Glitzy packages, the new fallen snow, a Christmas ornament shimmering from the lights on the tree - all of these things equal magic during the holiday season! Capture that sparkle on a card and share your creativity for our A Season That Sparkles Challenge! Once you make your card, you just need to use Mr. Linky and add your name to the list on THIS post! This contest will close Friday, Oct. 16th at 4PM CST. Winner gets our entire release for October!

So... now to my sparkly creation!

For my card, I wanted it to look like one of those holiday flags -- so I clipped the bottom of a strip to create that "V". I used gold detail embossing powder to stamp the Christmas Wreath from the Seasonal Wreaths set and then colored up the glass balls with the bright collection of Copic Spica pens. I love the micro sparkle from these pens! I will say, it's really hard to capture this on camera! You might just need to trust me. Here's a close up......

The rest was matting up my image. I used some deep red Bazzill card stock and a really old piece of Christmas decorative paper from Penny Black that has sat in my dp drawer forever. I guess it was waiting for just the right moment! I also added some small self stick gold pearls at the top and .... voila!

Want to see the glitzy creations from the rest of the Flourishes DT? Hop on over and see....
