BasicGrey Challenges - Sparkle

Whoops ! I've done it again ! So sorry I am late with my BasicGrey Challenges card ! I spent all day yesterday listing numerous items on E-bay is its free listings weekend and then spent the rest of the afternoon and evening trying to tidy up my craft room as it was more of a tip than usual. You can now walk through the door without falling over everything which is a major achievement !

I have also opened an Etsy Shop !  There is a link to it in my sidebar.  I'm crossing my fingers its successful as I have oodles of cards just sitting in boxes which seem such a shame.

Anyway, this week's challenge over at BasicGrey Challenges is SPARKLE.

Don't forget that you do need to use at least one BasicGrey product on your creation to qualify for our prize which is.....

A $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store !!!

and of course that all important "artistic view" !!

The papers I used are some old BasicGrey ones I found in my 12x12 papers stash.  These are called "Fruitcake" "Pine Branch/Avalanche"

The snowflake was cut with my poor redundant Cricut and I added some Stickles.

The letters were cut from chipboard with a Sizzix die.  I then covered the letters with silver gilding flakes.

The bells and silver twine are from my stash.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing all your sparkly creations !

Thank you so much for your visit.
