Lots of sparkle!

This card is for :-

1. Simon Says Stamp - All that sparkles

2. Colour Create - challenge 30 - All White

3. Penny Black Saturday - challenge 73 - White on white

4. Sophisti-cats - challenge # 9 - Buttons and ribbons

5. Cupcake Crafts - challenge 64 - sketch

6. Crafty Cardmakers - challenge # 7 - Stamp Something

7. By The Cute And Girly - challenge # 2 - Winter Wonderland

8. Creative Inspirations - challenge 20 - Doodle-ing

OMG was this card a brain stormer, Firstly I don't have any cuttlebug or embossing folders so I thought how on earth do I put any pattern into this card. You may be able to see in the pictures that my backing papers have glittered swirls, I did them using a glue pen and glamour dust.

Simon Says Stamp want to see some sparkle, well I think there may be half a bottle of glamour dust on this card, all the snow is glittered. Round the edge of the image i dipped into glue then glamour dusted, the snowflakes were glittered, and also the swirls on the backing paper.

Colour Create wants "All white" leaving only the image to be coloured, it's definately white.

Penny Black Saturday is "White on White" and there is white on top of white.

Sophsti-cats have given us buttons and ribbons, i've used ribbon on the button which is on the small snowflake at the bottom. And also three ribbon strips down the card.

Cupcake Crafts have a sketch and it helped me to put this card together when I was struggling with it.

Crafty Cardmakers is stamp something and to do a stamping technique, so my image is stamped and then my sentiment is heat embossed with black sparkle embossing powder.

By The Cute And Girly has done Winter Wonderland this time and I think the card speaks for itself.

Creative Inspirations asked for doodle-ing, well my doodling is done with a difference as I doodled swirls on my backing paper with a glue pen and the glittered them. Hope that counts.

Sorry the photo's aren't too clear we have had a really dull and wet day today, and for anybody who follows me I managed to make a smaller rose to my usual ones. But in the end although I struggled I like the finished look.

Happy crafting

Tracy x

Hi Tracy

I thought white on white would be easy until I tried it! Just how many shades of white are there in my card box? Nearly as bad as black!

You have manage wonderfully and I love your image and the snowflakes with their special centres.

Thank you for playing along with "By the Cute and Girly" this month.

Love Jules xx
