Sparkle and shine x

Good morning to you all and happy Thanksgiving to all my visitors from across the pond x

Today is time for another challenge at paper crafting journey and this week we have a super easy peasy challenge for you with an anything goes theme - so no excuses not to join in this time !

Our sponsor this week is the fab digital delights by Louby Lou who is offering the winner 3 digital stamps.

I used the anything goes excuse to add to my Christmas card pile and also the opportunity to use some of the peices of a kit I got ages ago and still haven't touched !

So the DP and the diecut image are both from that kit - Kanban's elegant Christmas collection.

I used some gorgeous ombre ribbon that has been waiting for the right project ! I pulled the wire on both the top and the bottom of the ribbon, to ruffle it up, and tied the wire at the ends - I love the opulent feel that it gives the card - it seemed like the perfect embellishment to that beautiful foiled diecut.

I wrapped the ribbon with some neutral button twine and added a stacked foil snowflake made with my marianne creatables die and topped it off with some extra bling !

Inside I have added the diecut sentiment from the same kit - it says "Wishing you a sparkling festive season" - I didn't get a pic of the inside as my camera died - I'll try to get one later today and add it asap x

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Ribbon carousel - Holiday hoopla
Shopping our stash - Christmas or winter
The house that stamps built - Repeat Impressions DCC1123 Designer’s Choice Challenge - Christmas with a snowflake
