Shimmer and Sparkle

              Today is the day!  A fantastic challenge starting at Really Reasonable Ribbon .....create something with shimmer & sparkle and ribbon of course!  This is the only challenge for this month at please join us.  I have broke out the glitter again....always perfect for the holidays.  I created two cards for this challenge...both very different in styles but both with the same glitter.  I always love the softness that glitter adds to a project.
                My first card is cute, bright, and very kitschy.  A fun image from my stash.....using a non-traditional christmas palette.  I added sweetheart blossoms in red and two tone blue and layered them with flowers from Riddersholm Designs.  I used Glory blue seam binding along with a bit of frayed fabric for contrast.
                 My second card is one of my favorites in a long time.  Using an old Spellbinders die I shaped my card into a label design.  I let my image and papers from Raspberry Road Designs take the lead.   I layered my image onto a stiff vintage crochet snowflake and than added in lots of vintage touches....snowflakes and vintage rhinestone buttons along with a WP cabochon.  I also used a sweet tree from Riddersholm Designs.  To add softness I used Bayleaf seam binding and than added  my glitter to the whole card.   Well folks that is it for me.....enjoy!  Hugs, Cherry
