WPlus 9 and Papertrey Ink Sparkle Christmas card







Hello everyone and welcome to our second Christmas Challenge over at Happy Little Stampers, where the cue word for this month is 'Sparkle' 



I am determined to make more use of my NBUS, so I have to once again 'fess up that the string of lights is from another unused stamp set that I have had for years and has lost it's label.



I stamped the strings onto a stitched panel that I cut with MFT Blueprints 23, and I coloured each light with Copic markers. The 'sparkle' word (from WPlus 9) was die cut several times and stacked to give some dimension, and the top piece was cut with glitter cardstock. I put the card together with a scalloped strip down the side and finished it off by adding some glossy accents to each bulb.

Why not click over to the Happy Little Stamper's blog to see some great inspiration from my talented Team Mates, and while you are there have a look at the great new stamps that have been released.

Thanks for stopping by/


Hugs
