Add a Little Sparkle


Another month and another challenge at Anything But A Card and this month the theme is


SPARKLE


What does the word sparkle represent to you? Sparkle can be a personality trait, or a physical appearance, or an attitude. You could be inspired with the written definition; go with a passage from a book or poem - or even quote a song... and of course we include going crazy with bling!


I found this lovely quote on the internet which I think sums life up for those of us who love our crafting ..... and yes I want to do more!  



A while ago I made some mixed media ATC backgrounds from lace and paper sitting around on my desk and then spritzed them with shimmer sprays. I have just added the quote and a flower made from the Tattered Pine Cone Die adding a little sparkle with some Crystal Stickles.




I hope you will find time to join us in our challenge.  Click the link HERE to go the challenge page and some wonderful sparkly pieces made by the Design Team.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

It really is a lovely ATC with the beautiful background and gorgeous flower. I love the sparkles on the flowers and I love the 'naked' ATCs too. Anne xx
