Sexy sparkly Christmas...


Happy Friday to you! Hubby and I had a wonderful Anniversary dinner last night, the restaurant was the perfect oasis in amongst all the Halloween madness here in NYC!!

I really wanted to enter the Kenny K challenge #158 Holiday Sparkle as I haven't entered for a while and I also wanted to use my Mrs Claus stamp.

I stumbled across a sheet of glitter velum in my stash and thought that would be perfect for this challenge. Unfortunately it didn't really work against the white card, so I had to put a red layer behind it and now you can see my ATG tape - FAIL...but now I think it looks more like 2 red stripes and I love that my fail has become a feature, so I am still entering it.

The red border is an offcut from the red background layer and the sentiment was made using my fave EK Success punch. I also used Stickles to glitter up the white parts of Santa's outfit. The star is all glittery and part of a set that I 'rediscovered' Of course she was coloured using my Promarkers (I wish they sold them here in the US)...

Here is a close-up so you can see the glitter velum and the stickles on her outfit - unfortunately, it was all hard to photograph....or I am just not good enough?!

I love her, she now needs a good home!

Have a great weekend, Hubby and I will be hanging with his folks who are in town for a week.

  2. Oh I wouldn't have realised that the red stripes were a mistake until you pointed it out! It's a great card and a fab image.
