Guest DT card for Sparkle

Isn't it wonderful to be asked to be a Guest Designer - it really makes you feel wanted and appreciated. So when Steph who is the DT co-ordinator at Christmas Card Challenges asked me back in July if I would be a Guest Designer I was soooooooooo pleased and did not hesitate to say yes. Then to make things even more exciting Sparkle sent me one of her gorgeous stamps to use - Caroling Josh - so without further ado here is the card I made for this weeks challenge which is to use Candy Cane on your creation.

I coloured the image with Promarkers - I am still practising with the shading and can never get it to match up to some of the fantastic creations I see in blogland. Here is a closeup.............

I have used Spellbinders Labels Seven and Create A Flake 1 - I love the effect with glitter card. Also I added a little charm from Trinkettes and attached it to my sentiment which is from a Crafters Companion Cute Companions set Glad Tidings. Here is another closeup for you..............

The papers were from a Craft Magazine as a freebie and are by Nitwit.

I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:-

Fussy and Fancy Friday - Winter Wonderland,

Creative Cottage - Embossing,

Simon Says Challenge - Punch em!(Punches and die cuts),

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Let's get punchy (die cuts or punches) and

Papertake Weekly - Sparkly and bright.

Hope you like it - let me know.
