Simon Says Challenge

Good morning ! I hope I find you all fit and well and enjoying your Half Term break ?

This week at Simon Says Challenge we want to see you all get sparkly in our challenge "All That Sparkles" so time to get covered in glitter, pearls, gems, tinsel and anything else sparkly you can find lurking in your stash !!

I followed the sketch on Friday Sketchers for last week which was lovely.

The DP's are are good mix of a few ! My Mind's Eye, The Merry Days of Christmas "Santa's Forest", Fancy Pants, Christmas Magic "On the Tree" (this is the reverse side of the paper I used for my CC Designs card in the post below this one) and Making Memories, FaLaLa "Music Note" which I bought last year.

The tag is from a packet of kraft tags and I replaced the string with some garden twine. I inked it with some dusted corduroy distress ink and then stamped a text stamp onto it with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.

Tilda has been coloured with ProMarkers.

The velvet ribbon is a Prima ribbon which was a pressie from Heidi in a Christmas DT pack we received a couple of weeks ago. So luxurious isn't it ? You should have a stroke of it, its soooo soft !!!

The crystals are Prima "Say it with Crystals"

The winter stamp is by Cats Life Press and has been stamped with distress ink. I also added some twinkles with a Copic Spica pen.

Heidi is very generously offering another $25 P&P shopping spree for the lucky winner and both I and the rest of the DT look forward to seeing your sparkly creations.
