Good morning everyone, here I am with my DT card for the Crafty Calendar Challenge. Our theme is 'Sparkle, Bling and Embellish' - what a brilliant excuse for glitter, gems, pearls, ribbons and everything shiny!!! I decided to make a Christmas card for a change - as if I haven't been making them since January!
I started off by stamping some little snowflakes onto the LOTV paper I was using and embossing them with sparkly Wow powder - this is lovely stuff! I added shiny snowflake die cuts and a few gems - there you have it Sparkle, Bling and embellishments!

I have used Wink of Stella clear on the stars in the pic but they are so tiny that it only shows irl. We'd love to see your creations in our challenge - you don't have to make a Christmas card and I'm sure you'll have no trouble using a bit of sparkle and bling plus a few embellishments on any type of card.
Oooh I've just realised I've not told you about our prize this month - you may have seen on my blog that I get lots of my lace, pearls and ribbons from Brenda's Lace and Ribbon Specials on FB and she has sponsored our Challenge by offering a stash of lovely lacy bits and pieces - take a look.
This is sooooo gorgeous you really should enter our Challenge you will be the luckiest person if you are our winner! There is one problem though - you will become addicted to all this lusciousness.
Thank you so much for the comments on my cards that you so diligently make, I really am more than grateful to you all.
Take care and I'm sending you all huge hugs.
Love Sue xxx
