12 Months of Christmas Link Up Challenge # 11 Sparkle, Sparkle Everywhere Midway Post 11/15/2015

  • Twinkling lights, garland, and tinsel oh my!  Christmas is quickly approaching and as we start to get ready for the festivities we'll be noticing that our surroundings will soon be rather bright and sparkly.  Whether it is part of the decorations that we put up or the special sparkle in the eyes of the people around us, there is a certain glimmer about.   Just like our surroundings, it is time to give our cards that same kind of glitzy look.  This challenge is going to be so bright, you're gonna need shades just to check out everyone's work!
    In order to have a chance to win the prize from our wonderful guest sponsor this month, we want to see a Christmas or other holiday card that has lots of sparkle and shine on it.   Here is your chance to grab your glitter, sparkles and other forms of bling and get to it!   If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that we include you in the draw for the prize.
    Remember, you don't need to follow the theme to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month, and have your name thrown into the year end draw for some extra digital goodies.  You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win this month's sponsored prize of a $15 gift certificate to the Sparkle N Sprinkle store.

I did everything I could to try and get the glitter to show up on my cards. There is a fine iridescent glitter over the complete card on both cards.

Hello, Today at 12 Months of Christmas Link Up the challenge is Sparkle, Sparkle Everywhere. I am Using the digi set called "Christmas Doves" by Sparkle N Sprinkle. You can find it here  Sparkle N Sprinkle are the sponsor of this challenge. You can find their store here
