Lots of Sparkle!

Hello, and happy December 1st!!  24 more days until Christmas....you ready?  I'm certainly not.  I have a ton more Christmas cards to make. I'm doing a 13-hour crop on Saturday, so I'm planning on bringing my Ipod, my favorite Christmas music, and getting down to work!  =D  If you're like me and you still have cards to make...why not join in this week's Digi Doodle Shop challenge?  This week, we want to see LOTS of sparkle!

Now, I tried to get a really good picture of this card, but it wasn't easy.  If the light shined on one part, it didn't shine on the other.  Trust me...it's just FULL of sparkle.  =D  I used the gorgeous Angel and Harp image.  She was colored with Copics (skin and hair), a gold Spica marker (harp and seat), Stardust pen (angel robe) and Stickles (wings).  The stamp is from Inkadinkado, embossed with Zing embossing powder in Copper.  The papers and jewels are from my stash.  It's hard to tell, but on the silver paper with white flowers, all of the swirls are covered with Stickles.  =D

Now you've seen my card, hop on over to the Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge blog to check out the amazing creations by the rest of the team.  There are tons of sparkly inspirations!   

Remember, you don't have to use a Digi Doodle Shop stamp, but if you do it will be entered twice.  Also, you can enter as many times as you want...as long as it's with a new card/project each time.  PLUS.....a new sale starts today!  For the whole month of December.....EVERYTHING is 25% off!!  Woo hoo!!  If there's an image (or two or three) you've been eyeing...now's the time to get it!

I can say I think of my first (and only) try with that image almost as a disaster...On the contrary - your card is wonderful! Love the gold-silver combination and the sparkling outfit!
