Merry Monday Challenge Week #114

Hello & Happy Monday!

Time for another challenge from over at Merry Monday!
This week's it's Katie's turn to host the challenge and she is looking for "Sparkle, Shimmer & Shine" on our cards!





My pictures aren't the best but they will do. When I rearranged my stamp room a few weeks ago I took 2 little lights off of my lightbox and I think they made quite a difference from looking at my pictures. I will have to re-attach them. 

For my card I pulled out this retired set called Bright Hopes. It's another one of those sets that I just love the images & sentiments in it. I embossed the tree in Silver Embossing Powder and cut it out with my Oval & Oval Scalloped Nesties. I layered that on top of a die from the Apothecary Framelits that I cut out in the Silver Glimmer Paper. I pulled out a sheet of DSP from the new Moonlight DSP Paper Pad. I just love the new Blackberry Bliss In Color! I mounted that on a white card base and added some rhinestones to my embossed tree. My sentiment on the front is made on a flag banner with a Blackberry Bliss bow added with a glue dot. I think I have the "Sparkle, Shimmer & Shine" covered with this card! It sure is beautiful in real life! Thanks Katie for an awesome challenge this week!
Be sure to head over to the Merry Monday Blog to see what the other ladies created this week. It's fantastic to see all the idea's people come up with!
