Sparkle & Shine with Poppystamps

Today I'm here with a card for Poppystamps December Challenge, Sparkle & Shine.

Sue McRae PS Dec 2014 Sparkle Shine Challenge
I decided to make the new Jumbled Birthday Die sentiment the focus of my card.  I die cut 2 layers with white card stock, adhered them together and added the silver sparkly layer on top.  This makes for a thicker sentiment.

For the flowers I used the Small Blooming Poinsettia Die and die cut a bunch of pieces from glossy card stock that I coloured with Alcohol Inks in reds and purples.  I think these cute flowers can be used all year long, not just for Christmas.  Just something to keep in mind to stretch your crafty products.

Now it's your turn to create a project for the Sparkle & Shine Challenge.  Use at least one Poppystamps image or die, and link it up here.  The design we love best will receive our winner badge to display on their blog, and one lucky random winner will receive a prize.  You don't have to have a blog to play.  You can link to any online gallery and the challenge lasts all month long.

I can't wait to see your creations!  Thanks for stopping by!
