WORLD CARD MAKING DAY....Time to Sparkle & Shine

It's here it's here! So the challenges have begun and I will here and there today! Hope everyone is enjoying all of the challenges over at the new justjohanna message board. You've all registered so you can win be in for the fabulous prizes right?

So here is my first challenge of the day! Sparkle & Shine! Because well I love glitter and rhinestones and all things shiny! I challenge you to use glitter, rhinestones, sequins or really anything at all that shines and blings it up a bit! Go nuts! Don't forget to upload your creations to your blog or the message board and link it back here in the comments section so you are eligible for the prize draw! Don't forget to upload an link before midnight on the 7th PDT.


Here I've used the Candycane Tree in a very haunting manner(HA)! I stamped it twice in Pigment Ink and colored them the same, I then cut one out and used a black glaze pen to really make the lines POP and shine. I added glue to the bottom of the other piece the card piece and my new orange glitter. While that dried I punched black bats out and gave them silvery eyes then used a clear glaze pen to make them shine. I also clear glazed the tree on the card piece to mask it off when I sponge daubered the card with grey. Stamped and cut out my tombstones, added various rhinestones to twinkle like stars and pop dotted my cut out tree and my tombstones. Really it's only missing sequins but I couldn't figure out how to make them fit into my graveyard theme? I'm really slacking!

Hi Marnie, Some of my glitter fell off I am afraid - on the way to the scanner. I had 2 types of beads, but some remain.

Thank you for this challenge!

Here's my sparkly card. The tree was embossed with pearly sparkle EP, then covered with gelly gems and stickles.
