Let's Ink It Up Challenge #7 Christmas with a glitter twist!

Happy Saturday everyone, hope you are all surviving the cold weather.
What a creative and resourceful group of crafters joined us with our Recycle challenge - I have picked up some fantastic tips. Please check out the Let's Ink It Up blog to see who won the fantastic prizes and the teams top 3.

Challenge #7 is Christmas with a twist - Glitter and bling

We again have two amazing sponsors for this challenge which runs from 5th December to 19th December Sydney time because we are having a Christmas break. We will be back on the 9th January 2011.

Sponsor number one is Crafty Ribbons

  and the luscious prize is

Sponsor number two is Outline Rubber Stamps

and you can win

which is worth $20.
You are so lucky - I wish I could join in!!!

Here is my DT card

I have used my Magnolia Flying Fary Tilda embossed with Wow Gold Glitter powder and coloured with Gold Stardust Sakura gel pen and the colour was brushed out with water. The sentiment is from a Papermania set called Deck The Halls and cut out using the Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments. This has been edged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Wild Honey

The glittery snowflakes were a candy win about a year ago. The lace at the bottom was from Quixotic Paperie. I have used the Cuttlebug embossing folder Snowflakes on a gold glittery card. Finally the paper is from an Artilycious CD Rom Seasons Greetings.

Please visit my team mates - their links are on my keft sidebar - they have some stunning inspiration for you.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:-

Simon Says Challenge - Sketch,

Paperplay Challenge - Monochrome,

Flutterby Wednesdays - Open with a butterfly, angel or fairy,

A Crafty Little Place - Anything Goes,

Magical Monday Challenge - Wings,

Totally Stampalicious - Anything Goes, and
