Happy Thanksgiving--Sparkle & Shine Challenge

November 15, 2015

 It's time for a new challenge at Sparkle & Shine!  We are excited you are here and hope that are inspired! For this challenge, please use the photo inspiration below when creating your projects. You can create in any way that you like as long as we can see the inspiration in your design. 

For this challenge we are sponsored by the amazing Winnie & Walter! Their shop contains amazing stamp sets, matching dies and digital images! The winner of our challenge with received a $25 gift card to their online store!

My card is created using Tangelo Twist card stock for the base.  (5 1/4 X 4 1/4)  The next layer is created on watercolor paper.  I used Gathered Twigs and Hickory Smoke Distress inks to create the background color. Then, I ran it through the Big Shot with the chevron embossing folder.  The leaves and twigs were created by coloring watercolor paper in Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Gathered Twigs Distress inks.  I used the leaves and twig dies from the set "Twig Wreath" from Papertrey Inks and cut each one individually to fill in the wreath.  It was labor intensive, but worth the work.  I love the way it turned out.

The Winnie and Walter "The Big, The Bold, The Extras" stamp set was used to create the banner,  "Teeny Tiny Wishes" Stamp set from Stampin' Up! was used for the sentiment.  I found a piece of twine in my stash and added it to the bottom of the wreath.  Sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added for sparkle.  Wink of Stella was added on the wreath for shine. 

I hope you are able to join us in this challenge. Check out all of the beautiful cards from the design team on the blog here!
