Sparkle!

Hi there!

I have a card to share this morning , created with 5 challenges in mind.

I have to admit that I struggle to use glitter on my cards. Somehow it never feels right. But luckily there are other ways to sparkle than glitter!

I have had this shimmery textured paper for many years, and it feels so good to finally use it!

I didn't want to go the obvious way using my bauble stamp and die set... love to go a different way.
Instead I used my circle dies to cut 3 rings to hopefully mimic baubles, and added one of my own digi sentiments you can find HERE!
Finally tied them up with a golden ribbon and bow!

The little bauble in the sentiment was colored with metallic gel pens






Challenges:
