Sparkle and Shine & Glitter & Glitz

The Creative Card Crew's Sparkle and Shine Challenge this week is sponsored by the Digi Shack and the DT was fortunate to have some images to work with. Don't you just love this dog?
He has a shiny nose and mug (Anita's 3D Gloss) and twinkly slippers (Glamour Dust). I paper pieced his dressing gown using the Cuddly Buddly digi paper and made the sentiment on the computer. The die cutting is Spellbinders.
Allsorts Challenge Blog - Paper Piecing

At My Time to Craft this week, the challenge is entitled Glitter and Glitz. I decided to make a Christmas card using a stamp from Imaginations. I heat embossed it in silver, coloured it with Copics and then added a liberal amount of Glamour Dust. The embossing is from a Papermania embossing folder. I coloured the white ribbon with Copics to match the free downloaded paper from Fred She Said.
This year has been the first year that I have made any Christmas cards so much in advance. It has given me the opportunity to use some of the many stamps I have acquired over time, as by the time December arrives, things are usually a little more frantic and I have little time for things like heat embossing and careful colouring!!
Do join in with either or both of these challenges, We'd love to see your creations!
