From Our House

It's mid-December and it's time to sparkle. That's because "sparkle" is the theme for our 41st Copic Creations challenge. Our sponsor is Just-Rite Stamps and the DT has done some gorgeous cards for this challenge to illustrate their stamps. The prizes will be two snowman sets (Cling) with a storage box from Just-Rite, plus a set of Copic Spica pens. Our challenge is also going to run through mid-January as we will not be doing a challenge on January 1. My set is from Just-Rite's "From Our House". I am including a close-up to try to illustrate that I colored part of the image with the Copic Spica pens to add a sparkly look. I used two different Spellbinders die cuts and covered my paper first with a piece of my Be Creative sheets adhesive paper.
After they were cut I peeled off the top of the adhesive and sprinkled it with my Glitter Ritz glitter in Ice Blue and Gold. I also cut two strips of the adhesive for the top and bottom of the card and added the gold there. I'm pleased with how it turned out - in real life it's really sparkly. Thank you for all your wonderful comments this year....they all brightened my day. I hope you're having a wonderful month and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
