all that glitters...

stamps: james wrapped in tinsel, set 26- simply sophisticated from lili of the valley
inks: memento (tuxedo black), promarkers
cardstock: 6x6 kraft card blank, kraft card stock, gold miri, craftwork cards digi cardstock
extras: glamour dust (gold), glossy accents, red and gold ribbon

I found this cute bear and decided he would be perfect for the sparkle challenge with the tinsel. I added glamour dust to the tinsel over a gold promarker, and glossy accents to make the baubles shine. I cut him into a rectangle with and rounded two of the corners. I matt and layered him onto the mirri for that extra shimmer. based on the sketch I then placed him on the card with 2 coordinating ribbons (for some more sparkle ... you can never have too much at Christmas!!) and a simple stamped message below. to hide the ends of the ribbon I cut and edged a piece of kraft card so I could tuck the ribbon under.
'lovely lili challenge- sparkle'
'w...winter wishes'
