May Your Holidays Sparkle - C4C #166


Hello, there, friends! It’s time for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge! Today Cindy is challenging us to use our favorite Christmas stamps for our card or project. And a little FYI: This is the last challenge for 2012. We’re taking the rest of the month off to have more time for friends and family during the holidays and we’ll be back on January 5, 2013.

Now, on to today’s card.
MFT’s Seasonal Sentiments has become a real favorite of mine this year and probably my favorite sentiment in the set is the one I’m using today—“May Your Holidays Sparkle”. Probably because I see it as giving me free rein to use all the  bling I want ;-)

I’m using an older MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge sketch for my layout. I find myself CONSTANTLY going back and using older sketches! So, after I got my base done, I added a bling-y flourish and then the sentiment panel, using Die-namics Well Worn Greetings Die Only. I did some stitching and some sponging and then topped it off with a Die-namics Winter Rose (which will be released on December 11) and some Die-namics Royal Leaves die cuts.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set:



And here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:





And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C166.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
