Anyway, it's time to share a 'make it sparkle' mid-way inspiration card with you for our month long challenge over at Joanna Sheen. But before I share that with you, there is some news on the challenge blog from our Team Leader Paula :-
"I do however also have some very sad news that this will be the final challenge from the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog as money for advertising and PR is always in great demand and there are several other ideas that Joanna wants to pursue. I am gutted at this decision as running the challenge blog has been a huge part of my life over the last 2 years and I was so proud when we were named as Craft Beautiful's craft blog of the year 2012."
Needless to say, the Design Team were all gutted when we received this news a little while ago, and I will miss the challenge and the team such a lot. I was beyond excited when I was asked to join the DT and so feel so sad and disappointed that it's coming to an end - and just want to thank Paula and the rest of the team for having me! But do pop over to the challenge blog and read more about this, see the fabulous DT inspiration, and leave us a comment to let us know if you've enjoyed the challenge blog over the last 2 years!
My 'sparkle' card uses a gorgeous image from the Thomas Kinkade Christmas collection -
I hope you can see the sparkle from all the stardust Sprinkles that I used, even though I'm rubbish at catching the 'sparkle' with a camera!
I've used pearl card on the based and some pearlised coredinations for the embossed panel, and some mirri card added for extra bling! The flower is a Spellbinders die with a pearl centre (from WOC). The lace is from stash.
So do pop over to the Joanna Sheen challenge and see the gorgeous creations from the DT - and join us for this final challenge (sniff!) with your sparkly creations.
