High Hopes Challenge - Make it Sparkle!

Howdy -

Today there is a new challenge starting over at High Hopes Stamps blog. And it is a pretty easy one - Make it Sparkle! Add a little bling to your project.

Me I used another one of the new release Christmas Stamps - Snowy's Cup - Cute snowman in a cup don't you think? There is a great set of stamps that match up perfectly too! Cup of Cocoa

I had lots of sparkle on this one! I had a scrap of the DCWV candy cane paper left from last week. Since the snowman was holding a candy cane I thought it was a good match. I colored with my copics. Love to leave the snowman white and color the back ground. Makes the white pop. I then added stickles to the snowman, lots of stickles. Now you might notice that the dark red card stock has some sparkle to it. LOTS of sparkle. Bazzil Glitter card stock has the glitter made in it, and man it really blings! I added a light green satin ribbon and put it all on Bazzil Dotted swiss card stock as a base. Also a scrap from last week. Love using things up!

Here is the snowman up close!

Now here is where I get upset with myself. I forgot to snap the inside photo. I was in a hurry and I thought I took it but late last night when I was getting my photos cropped it wasn't there. Oh well.. it looks a lot like the outside, except I made a pocket on the left side for the package of cocoa... that I was going to have to explain to you that I forgot to buy at the store... LOL Been one of those weeks...

Here are the Copic colors used -

Now hop on over to the High Hope Blog and see all the Sparkle from the DT and then join us for a chance to win more HIgh Hopes!!
