I always seem to join CCAYR at the last minute and I know it is moi procrastinating. I love the site and their challenges and this was right up my alley as it was sparkle and shine and I LOVE sparkle. I must have been a magpie in my previous life. I actually stuck to white and a light blue. There was a challenge from another site with a picture and it had those colours but I was way too late to enter in it but still love the colours so I stuck with it. I used the cuddlebug for the ornament cut out and silver stickles and a gem for the centre on the first card. The 2nd card was for the Sparkles Christmas challenge but I was a day late in entering it. One had to use 3 flowers, 2 gems and one stamp. There was another challenge to use ribbons and bows...yup missed that one to ( 52 Christmas card throwdown). I re-stamped the flower image twice and built up the flowers. The 3rd card, was from the ornament cutout and I stamped the village scene, coloured it with prismo pencils and glitter all the snow(hard to see on this pic). The 4th card-Yahoo I did not miss this one -One has to use felt or fabric-I used this sheer shimmer fabric to cover the whole card and then a big ribbon to the side. I added the "Season's Greetings" and snowflakes stickers. The last card-I used the cuddlebug and sparkled up the ornaments and added the ribbon on the top and bottom. Voila! Happy Easter. I got a beautiful card from my hubby and chocolates. Choclates are now safe and sound in my stomach...mmmmm chocolate.
