Sketch 36: GLITTER!


I love Sketch and Product Challenge days. :) Especially when I create cards (and projects!) that I just ADORE!! I wonder if Tami Grandi will feel the same this week...because we are focusing on glitter. (Hee hee!)


I used two Chocolate Waste Not Paper circle cardstock pieces (recycled cardstock!) for my card base. These are on clearance at Limelight for only $0.15, so stock up in all three colors! I layered on three additional cardstock colors, PTI Aqua Mist, SU Melon Mambo, and PTI Ripe Avocado. Onto the cardstock pieces, I split up the FABULOUS Unity sentiment "Merry & Bright" (from the Wonderful...you October 09 Store Kit) I lined the edges of the colored cardstock with Star Dust Stickles. After all, we ARE focusing on glitter here. ;) The snowflake I used as the main image is actually a chipboard snowflake from the Cosmo Cricket Buck Naked Ornaments set. Love those! I loaded it up with Blueberry Pixee Stix glitter and added a PTI button to the center to finish.


I had so much fun with the card that I created an ornament to coordinate! I used Blueberry, Raspberry, Cream Soda, and Green Apple Pixee Stix glitters on another CC Buck Naked Ornament. I tied a little bit of Raven Tulle around the entire ornament to add a little more pizazz. Fun gift set, right?
